Who’s to Blame for the Plight of Africa

Who’s to blame for the plight of the African continent? Who should step in and transform African economies and lift citizens out of abject poverty? The answer: Africans and African leaders.

Host, John Akhile, author of Unleashed: a New Paradigm of African Trade with the World, discusses how the “blame game” actually hurts the progress of African nations. If African leaders could understand that it is their duty to lead their nations out of poverty, they can. Using the example of China’s transformation, John Akhile explains necessary steps leaders must take to transform their own nations into booming economies.
