Trouble ahead!-----The Prospects for Progress in Africa -

The Prospects for Progress in Africa -
"...By mid-century, there will be more Nigerians than Americans. 
Nigeria is one of the world's worst run countries and its unemployment rate hovers around 24 percent. A dysfunctional country and an exploding population do not mix very well. What is true of Nigeria is also true of large parts of the African continent.
As we speak, one out of seven inhabitants of the planet lives in Africa. 
By mid-century, one in four people on Earth will be African. 
If the current trends continue, somewhere between one third and one half of the world's population will live in Africa by 2100. 
African unemployment is not easy to guesstimate, but South Africa, the continent's economic powerhouse, suffers from an unemployment rate of 27 percent. 
How, I wonder, are all of these people going to make a living?..."
