9 months ago





Africa is changing so fast, it is becoming hard to ignore. In the short term the continent faces many problems, including covid-19, but in the long term it could rival China’s economic might. Read more here: https://econ.st/2V8HGY9 doc

  1. Is it just me that the elephant in the room is Africa will be OWNED properly this time and africans will be 2nd class citizens in their own country thank goodness the African inteligencia
    have are and will always be bought.

  2. Wow they say that by 2100 that more billion people in Africa will be living and because of short food supply?? I think they are worried that they become a global superpower in my opinion. The more people are living more buildings and infrastructure is needed to sustain and thrive the economy. I mean any continents or countries can get foods imported from other countries to feed the population. So it's an excuse.

  3. ENSLAVE A CONTINENT INSTALL COLONIALISM AND POST COLONIALISM CORRUPTED DICTATORS TO SERVE YOU : then ask YOUR OWN JOURNALISTS THE ECONOMIST to “make up” !! A FALSE STORY OF AFRICA !!! Without mentioning your OWN WRONG DOINGS since CENTURIES IN AFRICA !! NO SENSE ! PERIOD !

  4. As history likes to repeat itself sometimes… I believe Africa can become a powerful continent due to make of its civilisation having vast wealth and resources, take for example Munsa of Mali, who had a rich empire and a economy like no other in his time

  5. The Economist completely missed the point. Corruption did not stop European countries, America countries, Russia, Japan, South Korea, Australia and China from developing into a first world countries so, it won't stop African countries. What Africa countries need is to start manufacturing goods and services of all kinds.

  6. Africa (which you've blatantly misrepresented) isn't a rival to China, they see each other as allies. Not to mention Africa is several times more diverse than China and has a chunk of the world's arable land. It's estimated that Africa has approaching 3000 languages while China has approaching 300 languages.

  7. Even if there are more than 50 countries in Africa, Ethiopia surely represent Africa. Ethiopia, not only the pride of Africa, but the pride of all black peoples. Many of you are criticising the video under the comments but the thing is fact. Take it as simple; Ethiopia represents each of you!

  8. I don't really think any place In Africa has a chance, not unless they can get more than 10 of their countries united. All I've seen Is that China Is buying out Africa piece by piece, day by day and there's not much chance of that changing EVER.
