Notes

First edition, from the library of Nobel Prize-winning American economist Milton Friedman. The commission's important examination of the economic development, living conditions, industrial activities, agricultural advances, and social issues across British East AfricaKenya, Uganda, and Tanganyika (now part of modern day Tanzania)was completed in two tours. "Its central thesis was that restrictions to free competition of the races as to goods, services and land must be done away with, notably as regards rights of African landholders outside tribal areas. The commissioners recommended that barriers to the free exchange of land be progressively removed, and called for establishment of development boards to plan the use of land and the rehabilitation of overcrowded areas" (Duignan & Gann 1032).
