Statisticians conventionally measure such growth as the percent rate of increase in real gross domestic product, or real GDP.. Growth is usually calculated in real terms - i.e., inflation-adjusted terms – to eliminate the distorting effect of.   Economic development – capital accumulation and structural transformation – tend to generate distribution tensions, those tensions are diffused in the short to medium term at least by expanding public policy interventions to address the upward forces of inequality unleashed by structural change between and within ‘sectors’: specifically.

  Indeed, there is some evidence that since structural change has moved in the wrong direction in Africa: labor has moved from higher to lower productivity employment .

The first, a fundamental feature of the economic development process, entailed large-scale reallocation of labor from agriculture to manufacturing and services, which pushed agriculture's share of total employment from 69 to 32 percent between and
