Overview

Abdoulaye Niang's Globalization: The Key to Peace and Prosperity in Africa is an honest, informed, and comprehensive look at how to make economic change improve the lives of all world citizens. More than a utopian fantasy, the book candidly examines the realities of making globalization happen in Africa and offers real solutions that will allow Africa to break free of foreign aid dependence and pull itself up by its own fiscal and economic bootstraps.Niang begins with a vision of Africa as a union of nations networked into a continental economy and market and goes on to outline a detailed plan that will give Africa's citizens a fairer share of the wealth generated from an abundant natural resource base. With a focus on development that can be sustained for generations, Niang proposes solutions that will offer economic prosperity with reduced poverty, pollution, and violence-making the world more peaceful for Africans, and more prosperous for everyone.
