African Diaspora: Come back to Africa or stay Poor Forever

If you want to become rich, which means you don’t consider yourself a rich person yet; your chances are close to zero if you currently live in Europe or in the United States.

Those economies are already rent economies, which means wealth comes from inheritance and dead capital.

Additionally, the capital necessary to upstart a wealth engine in those regions today is far beyond the savings of first generation capitalists.

Quick definition. Being wealthy means you earn at least 20 times the minimum revenue in your country.

Now, if you still want to become rich, the only chance left is to move to Africa, the only place now on earth where people are just beginning building capitalistic positions and future rent economies.

I don’t like capitalism, but for Africans dreaming to become rich, now is the time to move back home.

Warning: like in the nineteenth century Europe or America, or twentieth Asia, accumulation of capital happens more quickly in dirty, unlawful, disorderly environment like now in Africa.

If you can’t cope with chaos and uncertainty, then don’t dream to become rich, wait for winning lottery or the unicorn.
