Access from EThOS:
This is a study of the patterns and processes of change and economic transformation in post-colonial society with a focus on the political economy of industrial and economic policies. It examines the interactions between the state, the transformational and macroeconomic significance of industrialisation and the impact of macroeconomic performance on industrialisation under differing post-colonial policy regimes. It argues that the neo-orthodox approach that assigns a primary role to the market as a sufficient means of achieving industrial development and economic transformation is not only unrealistic, but also historically and empirically unsustainable.
