About Africa Economic
Africa Economic Analysis is an independent charity whose
purpose is to contribute to the advancement of public discussion
and understanding of prevailing economic conditions in Africa.
AEA aims to do this by providing a forum for debate and analysis
of the underlying causes of underdevelopment Africa and policies
to achieve modernisation.
We welcome contributions on political, social and economic
issues affecting development in Africa. Articles may deal with
any aspect of political economy with respect to Africa as a whole
or individual nations within the continent.
Africa Economic Analysis was set up in 1998 by some concerned
Africans wanting to use the internet as a vehicle for people
committed to African development seeking to share and explore
ideas on social-economic development.
Some people may say that what Africa needs right now is action
and not words or ideas. This sentiment is understandable.
However, Africa's current distress is caused as much by a poverty
of ideas and vision as by poverty of the physical conditions for
development. A pre-requisite for evolving effective economic and
political policies to underpin momentum for change in Africa is a
critical analysis of African societies in the context of a fast
changing globalised world.
If you have ideas to contribute to this debate please send
