Why is the Global Trade in Integrated Circuits a Development Question?

Author(s) Emmanuel Wa-Kyendo, Maureen Barasa,

Theme: International Trade,

Integrated circuits represents an unprecedented convergence of scientific advancements in materials, efficiency in production processing and market demand. In this essay, it is argued that due to this explosive convergence in science and trade, whether or not African policy makers recognize the fact, the global trade in ICs is and will continue to be a development question. The division of labour and specialization and comparative advantage has seen a handful of firms and a selection of countries principally in East Asia and North America appropriate the most important share of the consumer surplus in IC production. Lacking the comparative advantage to produce ICs, African households, firms and governments as a net consumer of the product remain beneficiaries of significant consumer surplus windfalls. Without the IC, Africans would be considerably poorer. Overall, African households, firms and governments are consumers of ICs both in the direct and indirect markets.

KNOW YOUR COUNTY FACT BOOK

Author(s) Annah-Grace Kemunto, Kwame Owino, Maureen Barasa, Noah Wamalwa,

Theme: Accountability,

The Know Your County Fact Book is a compendium of data points on administrative, demographic, education, gender, health, public finance management, socio-economics and political information at the national and county levels of government.

In 2013 Kenya commenced the transition from a centralized to a decentralized governance system comprising of the national government and 47 county governments. Devolution aims to enhance service delivery to citizens by bringing the resources closer to them at the county level. As highlighted in Article 186 of the Constitution of Kenya, 2010 there exist exclusive and shared functions and powers of the respective levels of government therefore creating the need to track and compare the progress made across counties post devolution.
