Speaking of China, they are investing at alarming rates in Africa. In fact an article was done showing many Chinese business men marrying African women.<quoted text>
The reason why china can sell stuff cheaper than the rest of us is becuase of access to cheap labour and raw materials...the key ingredients to profitable manufacturing...China will do whatever it takes to ensure they maintain the upper hand.
The US and the EU are snapping at Chinas heels..you have Eastern Europe (cheap labour) on my side, and Mexico (cheap labour) on the US side.
Africa doesnt even come into it...they are just a source of raw materials..Africa is an afterthought...the race now is to gain a foothold in Africa and, we all know Africans are known for selling themselves short.
I gave up on Africa, Jamaica and India a long time ago..I know the leaders are out to enrich themselves and their predecessors are groomed to follow suit.
You heart is in the right place..I donate to Africa via British Red Cross...I can at least go online a view their annual accounts to see where my money is spent...I refuse to waste my time with the rest of that BS.
