A United States of Africa. Is it viable? Is the West scared of it?Watch
It seemed like this idea was widely criticised by all but the most successful and influential African leaders. Which brings me to my first question, would you want to see a successful African continent in your lifetime (regardless of how it becomes successful- doesn't need to be Pan-Africanism)? My second question is, obviously I'm not an economist and my rationale was based upon common sense, so is this idea economically viable? I understand the social criticism that faces a United Africa, but I don't believe that should warrant dismissal of a potentially economically viable idea.
More interesting though is that there are two or three proposed unions that actually have political support (one in west Africa around Nigeria) and the other is the east african federation albeit there are heavily divergent opinions within the proposed block.
That being said, i don't expect Africa to be any more of a success than it has been. If there's one nation that will make it to western living standards i'd probably punt for Angola right now but that's fairly low confidence.

Pan Africanism seems like an interesting (albeit far fetched) solution. I doubt America would be afraid though
