The world economy is shifting towards the east. Like it or not, China will dominate the world economy for many years to come. Unfortunately, the quality of life for many chinese will not improve until after probably 50 years. Africa is likely to be a remote colony of China with the later controlling all African natural resources while provinding cheap comodities. The expansion of China in Africa might in the long run contract the growth of Africa’s economy making the whole continent dependent of China on everything.
