Roaring about life since 2009

the power of capitalism in africa

I like coming upon stories like these and getting surprised by my ignorance.  I know everyone has a boatload of stereotypes about Africa, but stories like these are great examples of a few things:

1. Things are not always as they seem

2. Private property rights can solve a whole array of issues, in this case wildlife management

Private Sector Rural Economic Development – An example from Namibia

3. The free market is improving people’s lives all over the world.

Low-cost solar invades Kenya

 

Very cool.

Have it good,
