    I see bad development blueprints as being big contributors to post colonial Africa's problems. Politically too many post colonial leaders went with one party states with the idea that one strong leader was best to unify a country with a diverse population. Economiclly too many leaders went with various forms of socialism or state control of the economy. This not only brought many of the economic problems you saw with the Soviet Union for example but also contributed to tribalism because it created a situation where every ethnic group wanted their people in power to distribute the wealth to them.

    Africans need political and economic reforms. They need to move towards democracy that's influenced by their traditional approaches to governing and they need to move towards more market based economics to create wealth and to reduce the role of corrupt governments in the economy. Botswana can serve as an example for these reforms.

    I agree.

    I think political reform is the first step. Many African leaders owe favors to the people who put them in office and use the countries resources to put unqualified people in public positions. The African Studies class i took last year was very indepth about it, i didn't realize how deep it was but it makes sense.
