  • The Distribution of Consumption Expenditure in Sub-Saharan Africa: The
           Inequality Among All Africans
    • Authors: Jirasavetakul L; Lakner C.
      Pages: 1 - 25
      Abstract: This paper uses a set of national household surveys to study the regional Sub-Saharan Africa distribution of consumption expenditure among individuals during 1993–2008. The analysis puts the disparities in living standards that exist among all persons in Africa into context with the disparities that exist within and between African countries. We find some evidence that African interpersonal inequality has increased, but this depends on the measure of inequality. The Africa-wide Gini increased from 53% in 1993 to 56% in 2008 in the full sample, compared with an increase from 54% to 56% in the balanced sample of countries. In the full sample, this result is robust to alternative measures of inequality, while in the balanced sample, some bottom-sensitive measures show a decline. Disparities in living standards between countries have increased, while there has been no systematic increase in within-country inequality. For the Africa-wide distribution, the growth of consumption expenditure (from household surveys) has been low (between 0.9% and 1.6% per year depending on the sample). This growth has been uneven such that the richest 5% of Africans received around 40% of the total gains.

  • Sources of Financing and Firm Growth: Evidence from Ethiopia
    • Authors: Regasa D; Fielding D, Roberts H.
      Pages: 26 - 45
      Abstract: Using Ethiopian firm-level data, we model the effect of different types of financing on firm growth. The form of financing is potentially endogenous to firm growth, and one contribution of this paper is to introduce a new instrumental variable which captures local variation in financial depth. Unlike previous studies of firms in low-income countries, we find evidence for a negative relationship between the use of external finance and the firm growth, which suggests that there are substantial cross-country differences in the finance-growth nexus. We discuss possible explanations for this phenomenon and its implications for development policy.

  • The Effect of Electricity Shortages on Firm Investment: Evidence from
           Ghana
    • Authors: Baafra Abeberese A.
      Pages: 46 - 62
      Abstract: Access to electricity has been widely acknowledged as playing an important role in economic growth. However, there has been relatively little research on how access to electricity affects the decisions of firms. Electrification rates in developing countries have increased but electricity access remains plagued by outages. This paper examines the impact of electricity shortages on firm investment. I identify this impact by studying an electricity rationing programme in Ghana, which placed significant constraints on electricity supply to firms. Using data on Ghanaian manufacturing firms, I find a decline in investment in plant and machinery during the electricity rationing period, with a more pronounced decline for firms in electricity-intensive sectors. This result suggests that at least part of the reduction in investment during the electricity rationing period was due to the constraints on the availability of electricity. These findings highlight the potentially negative impact of the inadequate provision of electricity that frequently plagues developing countries. These electricity constraints can hinder growth in these countries by curbing investment by firms.

  • Poor Households’ Productive Investments of Cash Transfers:
           Quasi-experimental Evidence from Niger
    • Authors: Stoeffler Q; Mills B, Premand P.
      Pages: 63 - 89
      Abstract: Cash transfer programmes have spread rapidly as an instrument to raise household consumption and reduce poverty. Questions remain if cash transfers can foster investments in productive assets in addition to raising immediate consumption among the very poor, particularly in rural Africa. Further, can asset investment gains be sustained over the medium-term after transfer programme termination' We use quasi-experimental methods combining difference-in-differences with matching on baseline observables to estimate the impacts of a bundled transfer programme on asset levels of beneficiary households 18 months after project completion. The results suggest that small regular cash transfers combined with enhanced saving mechanisms can generate asset accumulation among the extreme poor. In this case, the bundled intervention induces sustained investments in livestock assets. These gains occur among the poorest households and are not driven by gains among less poor beneficiaries. A lasting increase in participation in tontines (rotating saving groups) is also found among beneficiary households, suggesting bundled saving enhancement activities may contribute to observed asset gains.

  • Food Security Measures in Sub-Saharan Africa. A Validation of the LSMS-ISA
           Scale†
    • Authors: Bertelli O.
      Pages: 90 - 120
      Abstract: Despite the international community’s emphasis on the need to achieve food security, there is still much debate surrounding its measurement, due mainly to its multidimensional aspects. This paper investigates the capacity of a new type of measure, food security scales, to capture dimensions of food security that other measures, such as food expenditures, caloric availability and food diversity, may miss. Drawing on nationally representative household panel data from Malawi, Nigeria and Tanzania, I find that the scale is a useful complementary measure to standard measures. Cross-section and panel analysis shows that the scale provides further insights into food vulnerability and coping strategies characteristic of food insecurity, dimensions not captured by the standard measures.
