Shedding Light on Zimbabwe’s Economy


Funded by USAID’s Country Analytic Project, this study compares the performance of Zimbabwe’s economy to that of Zambia and South Africa, “the medians for low-income countries and low-income Sub-Saharan Africa”, and its own performance before 1998. The findings are not encouraging but make clear three priorities: macroeconomic stabilization; private sector rehabilitation, promoting the rule of law; and investing in infrastructure. Mr. John Robertson, a leading independent Zimbabwean economist, and the Fund for Peace contributed to the study.
