The Blueprint for Africa's FutureBook - 2005
In Africa Unchained, George Ayittey takes a controversial look at Africa's future and makes a number of daring suggestions. Looking at how Africa can modernize, build and improve their indigenous institutions which have been castigated by African leaders as backward and primitive, Ayittey argues that Africa should build and expand upon these traditions of free markets and free trade. Asking why the poorest Africans haven't been able to prosper in the 21st century, Ayittey makes the answer obvious: their economic freedom was snatched from them. War and conflict replaced peace and the infrastructure crumbled. In this book Ayittey looks at the possibilities for indigenous structures to revive a troubled continent.
