Abstract:

Tanzania's annual real economic growth rate has in recent years been between 6 and 7 percent with Gross National Income equivalent to about US$340 per person. A "hidden" economy could potentially have contributed an additional US$100 per person. This book is about the hidden part of the economy--the uncounted, the illegal, the unnoticed, or the squandered. It advocates a three-pillared approach to improve capture of this hidden value: The first pillar of good governance eliminates corruption, improves transparency, controls illegal activities, and improves accountabilities, monitoring, and compliance; the second pillar eliminates price distortion, improves capture of resource rents, and reduces waste; the third reduces conflict and social vulnerability.--Publisher's description.
