From the Paper:

"SAPs require liberalizing interest rates and increased government borrowing; in Africa, the oligopolistic banking sector causes higher interest rates. These are then coupled with an unstable political situation, monetary devaluation, and trade liberalization (often, a worsening of the balance of imports and exports), making the situation even worse. Trade liberalization fails because export markets are more competitive today than when the emerging Asian nations industrialized, making it more difficult to compete in exports. Since the Asian nations already specialize in low-cost labor-intensive goods, there is little room for African goods, forcing Africa to continue to rely on commodities."
