Zimbabwe inherited an economy characterized by uneven development, possessing on the one hand a modern industrial and commercial sector which was primarily designed to serve the interests of the minority white settler community, yet one which was notably dependent on foreign monopoly capital and technology, and, on the other hand, a low productivity and generally underdeveloped peasant sector. These colonial features of the economy were summarized most vividly in the first government economic policy statement, Growth with Equity. (1981)
