Ndongo Samba Sylla Africa has always been one of the most profitable regions in the world. It is the region which devotes the highest share of its GDP to income payments to the rest of the world.

De l’Afrique marginalisée à l’Afrique émergente : critique de deux mythes contemporains (From marginalized Africa to Africa rising: critique of two contemporary myths)
