Stabilization and Structural Adjustment in Zaire
The authors begin by assessing the effects of economic policies undertaken in Zaire prior to the structural adjustment programs of the 1980s and find that these policies resulted in major internal and external imbalances, making adjustment imperative. The authors then analyze reform programs since 1983, and contend that efforts to implement crucial policy changes were too weak and uneven for adjustment to have been achieved.
