What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

‘Witheringly critical of dogmatic World Bank and IMF beliefs that state intervention as such is likely to reduce economic welfare … The strength of the book is its thoroughly empirical foundation’ – Journal of Southern African Studies

‘Sender and Smith have provided much to argue about and their book can be recommended as a lively treatment of its subject and not least for its caustic rebukes to the faint-hearted. Anyone wearied by the writings of neo-Marxists, dependency theorists and populists on Africa can find relief here.’ – Times Higher Education Supplement
