These enterprises are supported by a state-dominated financial system that is increasingly beset by nonperforming loans. Following through on market, enterprise, and related financial sector reforms is essential to keeping China on a successful path of growth.

Reform programs were broadly similar along these dimensions, and the advice was largely sound. The analogous advice to countries today is: improve your investment climate, ensure participation of the poor (health and education, vital in their own right, will be key to this participation), and provide poor people with some protection from dislocation and risk. In these areas one can offer generalized advice—for example, on the importance of sound tax regimes and tax administration and of reducing corruption and improving the investment climate.

As a result, Africa had far less private capital per member of the labor force than other regions. Despite this scarcity of capital, evidence suggests 31 A Strategy for Development that the return on investment has been around one-third lower in Africa than in other regions (Collier and Gunning 1999, for the period 1965–89).
