Abstract in another language

In West African states, criticism of the “neo-colonial” CFA Franc currency and calls for monetary reform are not new. In this Megatrends Afrika Spotlight, Robin Frisch (University of Bayreuth) explains what monetary sovereignty means and it is debated in CFA Franc countries. A profound monetary reform away from the CFA Franc offers a potential way out. Proposals exist, but they lack implementation.

Was monetäre Souveränität bedeutet und wie sie in den Franc CFA-Staaten debattiert wird, erläutert Robin Frisch (Universität Bayreuth) in diesem Megatrends Afrika Spotlight.
