Will the African Lion Economies (Nigeria, Ethiopia, Ghana, Angola, Mozambique, etc) rise in the same sense as East Asia?

Posted by: Rezamee

What I am trying to ask is the question of whether the African Lions rise will be in the same fashion as the Asian tigers did 30 years ago? There's many signs that say yes; however, at the same time there are lingering threats to this rapid growth. What is your opinion on the matter?

Yes, these economies will rise out of poverty and become major economic hubs.

No, there are still prevailing problems that block the rise of these nations.

No, Somalia will rise to become a global empire spanning to the ends of the Earth. But first. . . We need a government.

@Rezamee Yes, but soon it will be Somaliaball after we take over the world( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

@UtherPenguin Nah man, Ethiopia will annex half of Somalia... We need the ports anyway also oil would be nice. I mean we could just kill the original inhabitants then colonize it with Amahra/Oromo, in fact we are doing that in the Ogaden region of Ethiopia, it has lots of oil but the Somali inhabitants refuse to work it. I can see the Ethiopian government doing something like that in Somalia. Also Kenya might play a role too. I will go back to Ethiopia 30 years from now and take over all of Eastern Africa, creating a economic powerhouse, then the world would be my next target! <---(Lol no)

@Rezamee How about we take over East Africa together? We take Djibouti and Kenya and you guys get Criteria and Sudan. I'm sure we could be great imperialist allies ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

You can take take interior Africa and it's raw resources, we take the coastlines and the trade.

@UtherPenguin I would but If I were to try to get into the Ethiopian government I would probably get assassinated relatively quickly, but other than that sure why not? I would use Sudan as a launch point to Egypt, if Egypt falls the rest of Africa would be easy picking. And oil would be nice.

If Western nations actually left these places alone, and stopped stealing their resources, they would be able to profit from them more than they do now. Also the people who live in these places have to be willing to progress, they are way too conservative which only hinders their progress.

@briantheliberal The western world isn't stealing resources from African countries, in most cases the reason a lot of Africa is in poverty is due to poor institutions and rabid corruption. Not the West, and if you are referring to western corporations, you have been mistaken, just look at China, when western companies arrived they brought prosperity with them. So please don't go around blaming the modern west for Africa's poverty issues in this modern world, it has been 40 years since the end of African colonialism, Africa has its chance now and I believe most nations within the continent are taking the right direction. Another thing, you blame Africans for being conservative. Conservative of what? I can tell you right now, most if not all Africans want their lives to change, just as the case of my parents, both are from Ethiopia, both are hard-workers, and both want to go back to Ethiopia bringing their american wealth to create profitable businesses. So to say Africans are being 'conservative' is just pure arrogance.

Brianthebigot strikes again.

58539672, Is bigot the only word in your vocabulary. Again you dumb @ss, expressing an opinion you don't like doesn't make someone a bigot. Learn the meaning of the word instead of throwing it around like an asinine child.

Rezamee, you're right, but so am I. Corruption plays a huge role in issues facing African nations, but so is Western nations taking advantage of these places. Do you honestly think four to six plus centuries of colonization just stopped? How do you think we have all the modern conveniences in the Western world, the resources come from African countries, particularly diamonds, copper, oil, and coffee. Many Western corporations rely heavily on these resources and often times prosper from those who inhabit the continent working for little to no pay. Ignoring one issue and pretending the others don't matter or aren't issues at all doesn't change anything. And yes, Africans in many countries are TOO CONSERVATIVE. Most African nations believe heavily in Western religious propaganda brought to them by missionaries which they use to persecute LGBT people among other things. You want the continent to improve? Start by changing these things first.

@Reamer Long story short, Easy Africans shall take over the world.
