Industrial policy and the political settlement in Tanzania: Aspects of continuity and change since independence
The study examines industrial policy and the political settlement in Tanzania. It focuses on aspects of continuity and change since independence. Data collection involved literature review and other reports. Findings show that mainstream economics has mainly approached the history of industrial policy in Tanzania by highlighting the failures of state intervention. However, by rolling back the state and conflating an industrial strategy with trade liberalisation, industrial policy under liberalisation failed to address the critical political constraints on industrialization.
