This perception placed overriding emphasis on the projection and maximization of national economic aggregates such as the GDP, the GNP per capita income, level of employment, stability of price levels etc. as sole measures of economic development performance.

    Oyejide's chapter poses the problem of choice of policy instruments. As political motivations dominate in many countries in sub-Saharan Africa, the choice of policy instruments has been very often erratic. Oyejide clearly illustrates this dilemma.

    Malnutrition is generally not perceived to be a pervasive problem in much of Africa, except during famines. There is little doubt that in "average" years, malnutrition in Africa is a smaller problem than it is in Asian countries such as Bangladesh, India, Nepal, or Sri Lanka. Another reason why nutritional problems do not receive much attention in Africa is that in recent years episodes of severe drought, famine, and starvation have been relatively frequent, and attention has focused more on the shorter-run alleviation of food problems than on longer-term underlying problems.
