Adjustment has not yet succeeded in raising the rate of growth enough to make major inroads in reducing poverty. In the s, world recession, drought, civil conflict, and other forces brought major economic upheaval to the countries of Sub-Saharan Africa.

Presumptive taxation involves simple techniques to capture income that frequently escapes conventional taxation. Most countries in sub-Saharan Africa have made great progress in stabilizing inflation over the past two decades.

After years of reform efforts, the region’s growth performance remains far too low to lead the economies along a path of economic development, which would counter growing levels of poverty.

Monetary policy in sub-Sahara Africa (SSA) has undergone an important transformation in recent decades. With the advent of sustained growth and generally stable fiscal policies in much of the region, many countries are now working to modernize their monetary policy frameworks.

This book provides a comprehensive view of the many monetary policy issues in sub-Saharan Africa. But when it comes to the economics of the media, sub-Saharan African countries share certain features in common.
