Description

In his book Lugalla looks at the relationship between adjustment policies and poverty in Tanzania. He understands Tanzanian poverty in the context of dominant social relations of inequality and not in terms of poverty lines. The author's main argument is that adjustment policies are intensifying these relations in Tanzania rather than reducing or eliminating them. He concludes that adjustment policies are not able to solve but create and even intensify poverty in Tanzania.
