Abstract:     
The puzzle that is Africa has captured the imagination of scholars, intellectuals and policy-makers. Jeff Sachs, Bono and Bill Gates have become identified in the public mind with the project to end poverty and disease in Africa. There should be no doubt that the puzzle is real and the situation is tragic. Why has Africa lingered behind the developed world? How can so many suffer from extreme poverty (living on less than $2 a day) and from disease (malaria, TB and HIV)? Far too many Africans face a life of famine, disease, political corruption and war. Africa has more poor countries and more oppressive regimes in power than any other region of the world.address the puzzle of Africa are a modern version of large-scale planning.
