The African Market

the African market. Goods and services on offer from African people to other Africans and the world. For example can I open up an African business selling Luxury Yachts to other African people? Of course not. But If I was Greek, Asian, Jewish or Arab I could. Now this is a crazy example but it still makes the point. There is no luxury Yacht market for Africans. The few interested in such things are too small to create a market. Ok what about if I said African lego? or African apparel on the level of Nike or Guess? That seems more reasonable –but still you could never find an African market to sustain a company 1/100th the size of Guess

The word Dashiki comes from the Hausa word Yarciki which means shirt. Usually it is worn with a Kufi cap which is worn in Islamic communities in Africa and the African Diaspora along with pants. Today Modern African clothes are associated with dashiki of West Africa although African clothes, as the name suggest, is any indigenous clothes of any African culture.

Business and the African World

The critical issue of business in the African world is pertinent in an era where globalization is an ever more encroaching phenomenon, and marginalization of groups failing to engage in business is creating greater economic disparity. Good business is critical for African development as well as a mechanism for self-determination.

The World as it is

The world as it is–not the world as we would like it to be, or the world of 3000 years ago has us not owning 99% of the things we use in our world. Not the DVDs, not the cars we drive and not even the food we eat.

Culture And Commerce

24/7 the world spins on the trade in culture of some kind. You wearing someone’s culture right now, you went to an Italian restaurant last night? Well that is someone’s culture, you enjoyed some Sushi for Lunch, well that is also someone’s culture. You planning to see X-Men: Days of Futures Past– oh yes that is someone’s culture and history–Look carefully at the history in it. Only us make ahistorical films and think art and culture are exempt from politics and economics. The Rest of the world got these things figured out 1000s of years ago. So much so that now when you want to buy African culture they not only own theirs, they own ours also

Blacks Do not Support

Business December 11, 2015

Today the world we see is the world we created. Our recent ancestors did not live in such a world. They lived in a world where they were next to powerless to control any of the events in their lives. Unlike us they could not decide to go and read African books and gain information, they could not create beautiful historical museums, or celebrate Kwanzaa without permission. But today we are the fortunate generation because we have choice. So the world we see, or do not see, is the world created exclusively by our choices. I always wanted to be able to buy quality African clothes online, but very few existed. I would love to find an African owned baby story with only African products for sale, targeted at African children– to my knowledge none exist. I would love to buy a DVD called Mansa Musa which matched the best that Hollywood can make–unfortunately it has never been made. The reason for that is because of the cumulation of Black choices was not enough to bring it into existence–nothing more and nothing less.

Socialism or Capitalism for African Development?

Development theory is essentially split into two worlds, the Liberalist-Capitalist mold and the Socialist-Communist mold. Some theorists also propose to fall somewhere in between the two extremes but many can be criticized of indecision.
