Achieving Financial Stability and Growth in Africa

March 31, 2016

DEGRP-funded researchers investigating financial regulation in low-income countries have just released their latest book, Achieving Financial Stability and Growth in Africa.

The newest addition to Routledge’s Critical Studies in Finance and Stability series, the book explores how the global financial system should be regulated and structured to achieve the twin goals of inclusive growth and financial stability in low-income African countries. To do so, it draws on lessons learnt by developed and middle-income countries in the wake of the recent international financial crisis.

Edited by economists Stephany Griffith-Jones and Ricardo Gottschalk, the book features contributions from a wide range of senior academics and policy-makers, including in-depth case studies from Kenya, Ghana, Nigeria, and Ethiopia, as well as wider analysis of sub-Saharan Africa.

More information about the book, including additional book reviews and sample text, can be found on the Routledge website.
