Books by Jakkie Cilliers
The Future of Africa
This book describes and models the impact of a series of fundamental transitions that are needed if Africa is to narrow the gap in development between itself and the rest of the world.
What stops Africa, with its abundant natural resources, from capitalising on its boundless potential? Jakkie Cilliers uses 11 scenarios to unpack how Africa can ignite a growth revolution.
“Cilliers refuses to adopt a fatalistic attitude . . . or to get stuck in simplistic models that equate GDP growth with genuine development . . . His very practical recommendations, largely focusing on issues of governance and policy efficiency, are based on solid empirical evidence and sound argument.”
