A WORD FROM THE EDITOR


Dear visitor and international investor,


We warmly welcome you, if this is your first visit to Africabiz Online - The ultimate newsletter on trading and investing in 49 sub-Saharan African countries. If you are a regular and faithful reader, welcome back.

- AFRICANS, STOP BEING POOR!

First of all, Africabiz Online's editorial team wishes you all a happy and successful year 2013.

At the beginning of this new year, let us face the truth: The Black continent is at the crossroad as the "official" economy in most (if not all) sub-Saharan African (SSA) countries is in tatters.

Notice the word "official" had been used to differentiate the official economy from the "gray" or underground economy that prospers in most African countries, to keep up to 80 percent of the populations surviving on US$1-2 a day.

The underground economy represents up to 60%-80% of the economy in most African countries. Without it, African countries would have since ages descended into anarchy and chaos.

The problem is, African countries cannot rely on the underground economy to make progress towards creating riches for all and improving the living standard of the populations because the gray economy does not pay taxes, and profit only the few.

Figures listed in Table below (about the size of the economy in several developing regions (1980-2010 - Compiled from World Bank World Development Reports) show SSA countries have one of the lowest per capita GNP – See Column 5, Row 3. (Click following link to read about Comparison Between GNP and Parity Purchasing Power (PPP))

The most critical is the evolution over 30 years of the per capita GNP (as per Column 6 Row 3) that is nil or negative - which confirms that the economy in SSA countries does not create wealth to reduce poverty.

In few words, figures in above Table and highlighted on Graphic below exposed, show SSA countries’ economies at standstill, sluggish, or in a deep comatose state compared to the upward trend that exists in other developing regions of the world.

That is why African nations's per capita Gross National Product (GNP) is stagnant (US$385-500) since 30 years running as shown on the Table (in fact it is stagnant since 50 years running starting from the late 1950's - the dawn of the "Independence" era).

GNP evolution in developing world

That is why the rate of jobs's creation in any sub-Saharan African country is nil (South Africa, the economic powerhouse of Africa included).

Millions of young people aged between 20 and 35 are jobless in African countries. At the end of each academic year, universities throughout the continent discharge millions of graduates who do not find jobs related to the education they received: Engineers, medicine doctors, Information Technology specialists, aircraft-pilots, and graduated from managing schools. Etc.

They survive exercising petty and casual jobs: Motorcycles taxis-drivers, smugglers, popular writers and assistants-managers to people who made a fortune in “gray” economy.

Every year in each single African country thousand of experienced civil servants are discharged and sent to retirement at the "prime age" of 50-56, to be replaced by novices/new comers (aged 30-35). That way "work well done" is discontinued. No doubt this is detrimental to the efficiency of the state to follow up projects, and therefore also hugely damaging to the global economy.

These are hard facts. The "official" economy in most African countries does not create jobs. It does not create riches to improve the standard of living of the populations. And poverty is rampant that is destroying families and consequently weakening the state.

It is obvious that things cannot be left as it is, when people are struggling to have a meal a day throughout the whole continent!


Something needs to be done (fast and quickly) to turn around the trend to the apparent irresistible decline of the economy in African countries.

If not, Africa is on the verge to be taken back by the powers of the day, to be re-colonized (35 African countries would be receiving military assistance starting from year 2013 to fight against terrorism!)

Indeed, former colonial powers (desperate to regain control of the global economy worldwide) are lurking and messing around (see what happened to Libya as explained in following links: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6) ready to do anything possible and unimaginable to take back the full political and economic control of African countries, placing stooges and puppets as heads of political parties and governments, in order to fully control the decision making process in African countries, to keep Africa as a perpetual subservient client, and exploit for their sole benefit abundant natural resources existing in African countries.

Honestly what do African countries need more now at the beginning of the second decade of the new millennium? Do they need military drills to fight terrorism? Or do they need the implementation of efficient economic development plans/strategies to raise the living standard of the populations?

The reply for Africabiz Online is simple: Terrorism feeds mainly from poverty. That's the fact. Therefore to fight and vanquish terrorism one has to eradicate poverty.

Thus African countries do not need military drills imposed by the powers of the day - with hidden agenda of global domination. African countries need the implementation of sound and efficient economic development plan (in each single country):

- To assist creating riches for all,
- To provide plenty of jobs in adequation with demand,
- To increase the purchasing power of the populations,
- To raise Africa participation into the global international economy from the ridicule 2% to a the highest level possible in accordance with the existing economic potential based on natural resources available.

No doubt that, the true developing of African countries - which would raise the living standard of nearly one billion people, would open up a huge investment market to the developed world, America, and Europe to provide technologies and sell equipment together with related maintenance services instead of promoting military drills.

It would be a win-win collaboration between the North (developed countries) and the South (developing countries) amounting to around US$200 billion a year.
