Development Matters: Malawi at the Crossroads

Malawi is a small country with great but unrealised potential. Following a golden era in the 1970s, successive governments have struggled to deliver sustained economic growth and prosperity.

In Development Matters: Malawi at the Crossroads, Harvard and Oxford University educated economist Taz Chaponda explores the pertinent questions about Malawi's future. Can Malawi achieve meaningful development in our lifetime or will it remain at the bottom of the global development tables?

Why has political pluralism failed to deliver social progress, and who is driving the development agenda? As Malawi turns fifty, the author provides a clear agenda for the future of the country.

The book is available on and as a paperback as well as an e­ book.
