Growth and crisis in Cote d'Ivoire

J. C. Berthelemy, F. Bourguignon

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


As this volume demonstrates, many industrial and structural factors account for the path that the Cote d'Ivoire's economy has taken since independence. In varying degrees, all these factors took their toll on Cote d'Ivoire's economy. The book tells the macroeconomic story behind these difficulties. The first part of the book provides a brief overview of Cote d'Ivoire's history and economic structure. It focuses on Cote d'Ivoire's huge public sector, the functioning of export markets and the foreign trade regime, and the organization of factors' markets, including the macroeconomic policy aspects of the money, credit, and capital markets and their relationship with the franc zone and WAMU. The second part of the book is devoted to the crisis of the 1980s. It is first put into a historical perspective. The magnitude of the crisis, its causes, and the difficulties in overcoming it are addressed. The last part of the book is more oriented toward the country's prospects for the long run. -from Authors
