George's ayittey's insights are the needed foundation for bringing prosperity back to africa.

I wish george would write more about his country. his insights are the needed foundation for bringing prosperity back to africa. i lived and taught for two years at st francis college, ghana. even at that time, so may ghanaians shared george's views. back then -- in the 1960's -- it was not safe to speak publicly about these topics.
