Well the real question is if Africa is getting richer, then who is getting richer? There is no point in us being pleased if its the klepotracy getting richer or even those with cash already. Are the poor genuinely getting richer? I agree with one of the last statements. Investment is needed but it must be African if small scale and/or genuine (ie. not exploitative) if on a larger scale. Time for the WB to put its money where its mouth is.
