#GlobalMMT: Monetary Policy & Sovereignty in African Nations

Two articles and a podcast added to #GlobalMMT: Commentary re Developed and Developing Nations
The CFA Franc as a Vivid Symbol of Colonial Continuities in Francophone Africa • Monetary policy in Africa has been dominated by a consensus formed in Europe and the United States. In France’s former colonies in West and Central Africa this has helped preserve the substance of empire long after its formal end.

Africa’s Path Towards Resilience and Sovereignty – The Real Wakanda is Within Reach • Colonialism stripped Africa of agency and confidence as well as material resources. In this article Fadhel Kaboub sets out a path towards independence and prosperity. He calls for a thorough-going rejection of the policy prescriptions offered by the former colonial powers, a renewed faith in the energy and creativity of Africa’s peoples, and a step-by-step programme to build sovereignty through the expansion of domestic production in energy, food and value added goods.
