    This is what happens when your population is full of idiots that want something for nothing that elects idiots. SOCIALISM IS THE WORSE DISEASE EVER TO spread throughout this world. It is a sickness.

    My opinion? I think South Africa is regressing due to reckless affiliation with Western nations the people rightfully distrusted for years.

    Blaming the white man again! It must be convenient to be black. When I fail, when I slaugher other black men and women, when I rape babies, all I have to do is blame it on the white man and all is forgotten!

    Which countries in Africa are the say are emerging? I they mention Nigeria, but they are stuck between a Slight Christian population fighting a violent and billigerent Muslinm minority. It's a quiet and ignored secular civil war. They are high in poverty, murder, rape, starvation, AIDS and a very uneducated population. They are blessed with the Black Crack (oil), but is this early an emerging nation? Is this really the only example the economist can provide? Wow!
