Sierra Leone: Crisis and Despair
Vol.17 No.49 (Winter 1990), pp22-33
This article examines the recent performance of the Sierra Leone economy; looks at the nature of the crisis facing the country; the Government's policy response; and explores the responses of individuals to coping with the crisis. The author argues that the economic crisis is very much tied up with the wider political question concerning the need for democratic accountability.
