Item description for Restructuring or De-Industrializing?: Zimbabwes Textile and Metal Industries under Structural Adjustment, Research Report No. 110 (NAI Research Reports) by Lloyd Sachikonye & Lloyd M. Sachikonye...

The impact of structural adjustment on the manufacturing sector of African countries has recently attracted growing scholarly and policy attention. This report is a contribution to the growing literature on the subject. It has the distinction of being one of the first longitudinal surveys to assess the experience of Zimbabwean manufacturers under the country's economic structural adjustment program (ESAP), which ran officially from 1990 to 1995. It documents the detailed experiences of selected textile and metal firms under ESAP, and concludes that the adjustment framework pursued by the country under donor pressure has had the net effect of setting in motion a process of de-industrialization. ESAP also took a heavy toll on the living and working conditions of manufacturing sector workers, forcing them to improvise a variety of coping strategies to combat their declining incomes and increased workplace authoritarianism. The report makes a strong case for the abandonment of the orthodox structural adjustment framework of industrial re-structuring and the pursuit of an alternative approach that would be more favorable to the local accumulation of capital.
