Video: Examples of Successful Countries in Africa

Arthur Mutambara, the Deputy Prime Minister of Zimbabwe under the power-sharing agreement between Mugabe's ZANU-PF and his Movement for Democratic Change, says that examples of successful countries in Africa include Mauritius, South Africa, Ghana, and Senegal. He also identifies three drivers in Africa that have the potential to make the continent a major player in the globalization scheme: natural resources, human capital, and infrastructure. He says:


"So using our natural resources, using our human capital, and using effective infrastructure and building new infrastructure, Africa can do well. And those examples I’ve indicated are an illustration that it’s possible for African countries to rise up and be players under globalization."

He makes a good point about the increasing number of democratic elections, but is entrenching Africa further into the globalized system that has historically left it the underdog really the idea of success? Isn't there a worldwide movement going on the fight against that?
