The performance of the Sudanese economy is an enigma of failures even with all the potentials of country's resources. The failure started since the year 1970 and continued the descent even with massive economic support during the following decades. Excluding the political instability and the epidemic of corruption that continued to engulf the economy, there are reasons that mismanagement affected the economic performance. The entry of oil production into the Sudanese economy did not improve the macroeconomic situation, services or income per capita, but resulted in escalating the urge of the authorities to control money supply. There were signs that ill-policies strangulated the economy. Moreover, there are strong signs that the real economic production sectors deteriorated in its outputs and income sharing.
