The Future Is in Africa, and China Knows It
« on: September 21, 2018, 12:50:34 PM »

Fast population growth offers some great investment opportunities, but the West is missing out.

During the past decade, China has been investing a lot of money in sub-Saharan Africa:

Some Western observers worry that this represents a new form of colonialism. Given the continentís history with European conquerors and rich countries trying to cheaply exploit its natural resources, that suspicion is understandable. But although China can sometimes be predatory ó for example, when uneconomical projects saddle African companies or governments with unpayable debt ó the new African investment bears little resemblance to the colonialism of old.
I know exactly what you mean. Let me tell you why youíre here. Youíre here because you know something. What you know you canít explain, but you feel it. Youíve felt it your entire life, that thereís something wrong with the world.
You donít know what it is but its there, like a splinter in your mind
