They are busy copying a model of development, the authors are busy trying to get out from.
Europe and America which are their ideal model, are in contrary convinced their model is in crisis, and are struggling to fix it. They are not even sure how to fix it.
Why the hell, Africans are busy copying a model the authors don’t want anymore, and are trying to get out of?
Are Africans stupid? So stupid?
The development, Africans are so eager to copy is mainly based on the brain power of a tiny part of the world population, representing less than 15℅ of humanity, the Europeans.
Seeing the western model of organization as the ultimate stage of humanity development, and therefore copying it blindly is a sign of lack of self confidence in the ability of the non-white (85% of the world population) to bring forward models that are better.
The problem of Africans (huge generalization) is that we don’t believe in ourselves to bring models others would copy.
