The end of global inequality?

Africa has long been regarded as the lost continent. However, in the past decade, Sub-Saharan Africa has become the fastest growing region of the world. How should we interpret that growth? Will it last? And will the region be able to outgrow its political fragility? Ewout Frankema, economic historian, studies the history and nature of global inequality, with a focus on long-run African economic development.
