Neo-liberalism has dominated academic debates and policy choices concerning economic development since the early 1980s. Although this approach has been vigorously critiqued from different perspectives, these critiques have not coalesced into a recognizable alternative in the development economics literature. The main objective of this book is to formulate and name an alternative to neo-liberalism, identify what is new in this approach, and project it onto the academic landscape.
Dear Mr. Sikhakhane,
Thanks for your analysis, but a large part of it is not correct and fails to raise the strategic and fundamental issue of economic alternative for Africa.
As the lead consultant for CoDa (just recruited 4 weeks before the meeting took place), I was asked to prepare a paper and to speak 30-35 mn and spoke 42 mn. The 20 mn you referred to seems to be a last minute arbitrary decision (on the program) and unknown to me.
Africa is suffering from the direct consequences of an exogenous crisis linked to excess deregulation and organization of wealth creation disconnected from production and the real economy. Through its prudent macro-economic management and the weakness of its financial infrastructure, Africa very scarcely operates on the virtual marketplace, much less dabble in speculation. As such, Africa is neither guilty nor responsible for the 2008 financial crisis, even though it bears the brunt of the collateral effects of economic externalities.
The Coalition for Dialogue on Africa (CoDA) offers an alternative perspective on the responses to the consequences of the 2008 financial crisis in Africa. The paradigm of economic and financial dependency can no longer adequately explain the complexity of a systemic crisis facing African Nations. The under-mentioned prerequisites must be met: break with the palliative economy, reject the conception of Africa as the variable adjustment for post-industrial economies, be ever alert to the trap embedded in the “poverty reduction” concept which is by no means synonymous with shared wealth creation, neutralize straight-jacket solutions considered as “universal solutions”, etc.
