Investing in Africa

Boring article but another cool graphic, this time by Bloomberg, on investment in Africa.

I was in Zambia and Zimbabwe in June. It was fun to take pictures of the construction projects we drove past. Lots of local workers and one to three Chinese guys. China is doing a whole bunch of building in Africa. The Hydro-electric plant at Lake Kariba was amazing. It is all good. I just am dubious about the longevity and motivation of the whole thing.

Unfortunately or fortunately, the US has a unique relationship to Africa. Even to be distinguished from the Brits.I have so much hope that the Oooooobama administration will see the potential for partnership!!
