The materials in this book have been taken from the research work that was undertaken by Ms. Chisha Chakanga during her undergraduate days in Namibia with Dr. Cyril Ogbokor as the project supervisor. This book consists of five chapters. Essentially, it investigated the major drivers of economic performance by using Namibia, Botswana and Zambia as laboratory test grounds. It made use of graphical, algebraic and descriptive methods in its analysis. I strongly recommend this book to all those who are in need of information relating to SADC economic issues.
