Description - Africa and Asia in Comparative Economic Perspective by Peter Lawrence
This invaluable collection compares the relatively unsuccessful economic development of Subsaharan Africa with that of the successful Asian economies, especially the Asian 'tigers'. It covers three main areas of comparison: the lessons for Africa from the Asian experience; secondly, the comparisons of various aspects of economic development in Africa and Asia; and finally, convergence: how far the laggard economies are catching up with, or diverging away from, each other.
