Commodity Prices and Growth in Aftica

Angus Deaton ()

Working Papers from Princeton, Woodrow Wilson School - Development Studies

Abstract: In this paper, I briefly review the literature on commodity prices as it touches on African economic development; fuller accounts are given in Gersovitz and Paxxon, Deaton and Miller and Collier and Gunning. In the next section, I provide some data that documents who exports what, and what has happened to the world prices of the relevant commodities.
