Economic theory does not give a clear answer on whether political freedoms help or hinder economic transition. Surveys presented in Rodrik () and in Williamson () present arguments for both sides of the debate. Balcerowicz (), and Balcerowicz and Gelb (), discussing the interplay between economic policy.

The global movement toward democracy, spurred in part by the ending of the cold war, has created opportunities for democratization not only in Europe and the former Soviet Union, but also in Africa.

This book is based on workshops held in Benin, Ethiopia, and Namibia to better understand the dynamics of contemporary democratic movements in Africa. A belief that democracy is bad for economic growth is common in both academic political economy as well as the popular press. Robert Barro’s seminal research in this area concluded that “more political rights do not have an effect on growth The first lesson is that democracy is not the key to economic growth” (Barropp.
