Sapping Human Capital Investment: The Impact of Structural Adjustment Programs on African Human Development Policies
Abstract:This study documents the way the ‘structural adjustment programs’ required by the IMF and the World Bank actually make it more difficult for SSA countries, particularly Nigeria, to provide quantitative and qualitative education for all. Those unfortunate decisions that limit the amount of government expenditure on human development, such as education and health need to be expeditiously reversed.
