Title:The capital goods sector in Zimbabwe
Author:Ndlela, Daniel B.
Periodical:The Zimbabwe Journal of Economics
Geographic term:Zimbabwe
industrial development
Abstract:This article discusses the central role of the capital goods sector in the economy, its Internal dynamics and the social factors that spear-headed the growth of this sector during the colonial period. The implementation of an inward-looking industrialisation programme for Zimbabwe will depend on many factors at the centre of which is the class alliance of the national bourgeoisie engaged in production and the bureaucratic bourgeoisie influencing policies for industrialisation or the domination of a comprador bourgeoisie which may seek yet closer alliance with international capital and farther transnationalise the economy and thereby destroy the inherited semi-autonomous production base that evolved under the white settler administrations. Another option of the class alliance is that of the progressive (socialist) forces which will seek a radical transformation of the existing production relations into socialist ones. Bibliogr., notes.
