Why Africa is Poor looks at the fragile economic and political situation in Africa and makes the quite controversial argument that the main reason Africa’s people are poor is due to the choices made by their leaders.
Dr Greg Mills draws extensively from his experiences running various presidential-level advisory teams across the continent and examines the policy choices that have stunted African development. In providing some answers to the conundrum of development, the book focuses on the way the global economy works, Africa’s record and the choices made by its leaders, the role of the outside world and the global aid regime. It assesses whether the odds are in Africa’s favour and identifies the areas where African leadership could make better choices.
