QUOTE                                                      

Classical Liberal principles must be at the root of Africa’s economy to create intra-trade, competition and prosperity. This is the only way Africa’s democratic beings would prosper. Having all the resources with the wrong ideology creates a stunted economy and poverty.    Peter Bismark     No society can surely be flourishing and happy, of which the far greater part of the members are poor and miserable.” —Adam Smith
