Trade is the economic life blood of any society. For the past two decades, much of America's productive base has been transferred offshore, mostly to Asia. But America's trade as well as budget deficit continues to deteriorate. What is the answer?
Scholar and speaker Dr. Kofi J. Roberts presents a practical and engaging solution from the African viewpoint. Through extensive research, Roberts argues that Africa represents the only true hope for America to regain her global standing as a producing nation capable of maintaining positive trade balance. For America to take on such role, prevailing negative ethos toward Africa must change.
Roberts offers a brief, comprehensive history of Africa from its earliest period through colonialism and from the Cold War until the present. He deconstructs the myths surrounding this proud nation and shows how the disruption of ancient African civilizations greatly impacted the continent's future. In addition, Roberts stresses the need for Westerners and Africans themselves to work together to achieve meaningful and lasting change.
Africa can represent a significant trade partner for America once prudent and lasting solutions are established. With a considerate and sincere offer of a hand up, Africa may well become the world's next profitable market.
