Africa experts Jake Bright and Aubrey Hruby lament Westerners’ misconceptions about the massive continent. They communicate what they see as a compelling growth story unfolding in a place Westerners often disregard. Skeptics may find their analysis too full of cheerleading. Many believe that civil strife will dominate, that growing public debt will yield defaults, and that informal economies, weak regulatory schemes and spotty infrastructure cannot produce double-digit growth. Bright and Hruby advise moving past the criticism and focusing on Africa’s opportunities.
