In their book Making Markets Work for Africa, Eleanor Fox and Mor Bakhoum argue that competition law and policy can be made more relevant for the inclusive growth of developing countries if a bottom-up approach is followed. They suggest that the most detrimental obstacles to competition faced by each country differ with their stage of economic development and that national competition laws should therefore be designed so as to allow each country to address the specific challenges it faces. This essay discusses the approach of the authors and points to some areas where further research is warranted in light of the recent experience of Sub-Saharan African countries.
