Principal Constituents Decomposition of Economic Development—A Domestic Level Analysis of Sub-Saharan African Countries
AbstractThis paper tries to answer the question of what should be the main focuses to improve the poverty situation in Sub-Saharan Africa, through a liberal perspective, by decomposing the economic development in the region into several principal constituents on the domestic level. Emphasis is made on the policy evaluation and implications from these constituents, with a special note on the actual institutional implementation, where the issues of agency coordination are discussed. A case of Tanzania is provided in the appendices in an attempt to better illustrate the analytical results.
