Fiscal Policies, African Countries
The paper discusses the critical role of fiscal policy in developing African economies. While it is accepted that fiscal management is one of the important functions of a modern state, the nature of the fiscal management in a specific environment determines, to a large extent, the overall effect of such intervention. The Nigerian experience indicates a very narrow revenue base that could not withstand the weight of public expenditure and investment.
