Joe Stiglitz and Anya Schiffrin on Namibia
Project Syndicate - Namibia, an economic success story.
A short introduction to the economics of Namibia, for those of you long B2Gold.
Alternately, a good intro to how a country that experienced 19th-century European colonization, then fought through a long resistance war against South Africa, has nevertheless managed to turn itself into a shining lesson on how an African country can actually progress into the 21th century, with press freedom, universal education, health care, and all the other things that other African countries are utterly incompetent at.
