The countries of the West can no longer practice business as usual and must learn from this horrid financial crisis in order to never repeat it again.

India, China, Brazil and Russia have improved their economies because of investment, now Africa can do the same and I really believe they will because the young men and women of Africa are creating a renaissance on the continent and they are actually becoming the change they want to see in Africa.
