Summary:

This book describes the reforms needed to move small middle-income countries in sub-Saharan Africa to advanced-economy status.

It spans topics from macroeconomic vulnerability and reserve adequacy to labor market institutions and financial inclusion. The book is a must-read for researchers interested in the economic issues facing developing countries in sub-Saharan Africa.
