Abstract

Many sub-Saharan countries have experienced slow economic growth in the past three decades. This dismal situation has often been associated with the debt problem. Socioeconomic reform since the late 1970s, and especially during the 1980s, has centered on debt-alleviating strategies formulated and implemented primarily under the auspices and supervision of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Bank. This study approaches the issues of debt and socioeconomic reform in two ways: first, as an assessment of the relative performance of strong and weak reform countries during the 1980s; and, using this as a background, by reform to the process of structural transformation that occurs under the impetus of domestic and international market forces. -from Authors
