"Far reaching macro-economic and structural reforms combined with increases in government spending have been the primary drivers of Tanzania's growth acceleration. As growth in government spending slows, the locomotive for growth will need to shift to increased demand for exports and domestically produced goods, requiring Tanzania to strengthen substantially its international competitiveness, accelerate structural change, and safeguard the environment while maintaining macroeconomic stability.

Annotation In the early 1980s, Tanzania's agricultural exports collapsed. Subsequently, economic reforms were introduced to allow market forces to play a greater role in the economy.

An exologically oriented study of the course of subsistence change among the Sandawe of central Tanzania is presented. It first tries to examine the internal and the external, the social and the physical forces that have produced the patterns we now see. It then goes on to provide a base from which future change and development can be planned and understood.
