Green, Reginald H.
MetadataShow full item record
Namibia is approaching independence with a very limited quantity of either research or baseline data available. Its history, the course of the liberation struggle, the structure of the economy all suggest that the political economic transition will be drastic, rapid and in danger of being chaotic. This Discussion Paper seeks to provide a basic political economic survey of the land, its history, the present economic structures, the political economic platform of the liberation movement. It also includes a set of statistical estimates - Population, Employment, Education; National Accounts; Agriculture, Fishing, Mining, Public Finance - to begin filling the gap left by the absence of published official statistics.
