    on 29) it depends on what is meant by cautious. Cautious to me is lowering all risks, but in Zambabwe, the land was just redistributed to government officials, and agriculture production stopped. It has been an unmitigated disaster in any view. But I suspect your text says it was a cautious program.


    20. None of the answers are right. The "turn-around" in Tanzania was its removal of price controls, and restrictions of a socialist control of industry. This development of a more market dominated economy (Adam Smith's invisible hand) helped the economy. Donor states started to give loans, which infused the economy (Answer d), however, Tanzania remains a donor dependent country, it cannot exist as viable without capital input from foreign countries. I am certainly of the opinion that this is not turning around a failing economy.
    Answer d is probably the right answer, but a better answer would have been
    e) removing socialist controls on the economy and moving to a market based economy.
