Africa isn't getting economics wrong, economists are getting Africa wrong.

Africa isn't getting economics wrong, economists are getting Africa wrong.

Economic historian Morten Jerven explains why Western economists have been so wrong on sub-Saharan Africa - from inadequate data and flawed models, to damaging Western-imposed liberalization efforts - and how economists can amplify Africa's growth by correcting their own flaws and focusing on the region's needs, not its deficiencies.

Morten's latest book is Africa: Why Economists Get it Wrong from Zed Books.
