Africa should not compete.
The New African article "Africa should not compete" (August/ September edition) is absolutely on point. Africans should seek to reacquaint themselves not only with themselves, but the distributive ways of their ancestors who established societal traditions, which are the foundations of human civilisation. As an African-American, born and still living in North America, I can state with confidence that the system of wealth distribution does not work for the majority of the people. This inherited failure is rooted deep within the culture of Western civilisation. It is an economic system steeped in medieval feudalism, wrapped in a new definition called capitalism.
Africa would be ill advised to adopt such a system whose failures are apparent the world over.
