Understanding the Exercise of Power

Chapter
  • 200 Downloads

Abstract

This chapter discusses the various sources of power and how they are used in development finance. It examines the economic situation of African countries and problems they face in their drive to reduce poverty. These problems provide the background, which, in turn, facilitates the exercise of power by the dominant forces and the acceptance of such exercise of power by the non-dominant forces. It provides figures to demonstrate the strength of the influence of the dominant external forces in the economies of African countries. It discusses the exercise of power with concrete real-life examples. The perception of the population in the recipient countries receives due attention in illustrating how power can be and is being exercised in the context of development finance to African countries.
