Description

From the vantage point of many in the West, Africa remains a continent of woe a place stalked by ethnic conflict, corrupt dictatorships, religious strife, war and famine. But today, at last, the flawed mythology that treats Africa as a homogenous disaster area is being challenged by investors, economists, fund managers and academics. Age is not often associated with speed; but Africa, the cradle of civilisation, now has more of the world s fastest-growing economies than any other. After a generation of relative stagnation in the late 20th Century, many in Africa have begun the long-awaited period of catch-up with the developed world. The bottom billion is becoming the fastest billion. This book, the work of a group of African economists and highly respected analysts from Renaissance Capital, the leading emerging markets investment bank, aims to accelerate the world s realisation that Africa has no intention of allowing the coming decades to add up to an Asian Century . Africa s day has arrived. Proceeds from the sale of this book will be donated to Ashesi University, Ghana. www.ashesi.edu.gh View the video trailers at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k1krRT3R9cc&feature=youtu.be and https://vimeo. com/50979959 Visit our website www.fastestbillion.com for more information
