Adjustment and poverty in Tanzania

Joe Lugalla, The Aga Khan University

This work was published before the author joined Aga Khan University.


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