Cattle, Diamonds and Institutions: Main drivers of Botswana's economic development, 1850 to present

Hillbom, Ellen LU (2014) In Journal of International Development 26(2). p.155-176
Abstract
This study investigates the role of political as well as economic institutions, factor endowments and geography as main drivers of change in Botswana’s long-term economic development, from 1850 to the present. The claim that we need to embrace multi-causal explanations

giving equal explanatory value to all mentioned potential drivers is made. Further, in order not to compress history, we should give equal attention to the pre-colonial, colonial and postindependence eras. The study leads by example and provides a thorough analysis that enriches our understanding of the country’s past and present.
