Episode 18: Why Africa is Poor
/

Explaining Africa’s poverty is by no means a straightforward exercise. Unsurprisingly it has generated polarized debate. On the one extreme are those who see a congenital problem with the African race, summed up as intellectual inferiority. The other end has those who heap the blame on external hedonistic forces called imperialists. So, is Africa a victim or a culprit? Choolwe Mwetwa, author of Why Africa is Poor, joins Tyrell to discuss this subject.
