Africa Takes Off | Geography 400 | Scoop.it

Ask this question: Which region of the world currently is the home to 6 of the 10 fastest growing economies?  Most people (myself included) would be surprised to hear that the region is sub-Saharan Africa.  While Sub-Saharan Africa is still the least economically developed region with some very significant challenges, too often Africa is only taught as a region of problems and negative patterns.  

 

Justin Roscoe- Its Intriguing to me that a continent with such an abundance of resources has been so devastated by colonialism and civil wars for so long and is just now taking vast economic strides. While I'm pleased to see it, it should have been something that happened a long time ago for a continent so rich with resources with so much potential.
