If Africa's first liberation was from colonialism, and its second from the tyranny of many of its liberators, the third must concentrate on economic development. Africa has to overcome its racial, tribal, and religious divisions and offer Africans the opportunity to set their own agendas. To achieve economic development, African governments must embrace a "growth ideology." Many African governments have to drop their animus to capitalism and create a welcoming environment for domestic and foreign capital. Please join our panel for a discussion about the future prospects for growth on the African continent.
