This week he interviewed Brenthurst Foundation Director Greg Mills about his book “Making Africa Work”.
Description on Amazon:
Sub-Saharan Africa faces three big inter-related challenges over the next generation.
It will double its population to two billion by 2045.
By then more than half of Africans will live in cities.
And this group of mostly young people will be connected with each other and the world through mobile devices.
Properly harnessed and planned for, this is a tremendously positive force for change.
Without economic growth and jobs, it could prove a political and social catastrophe.
Old systems of patronage and of muddling through will no longer work because of these population increases.
Instead, if leaders want to continue in power, they will have to promote economic growth in a more dynamic manner.
“Making Africa Work” is a first-hand account and handbook of how to ensure growth beyond commodities and create jobs in the continent.
