“A man who has one finger pointing at another has three pointing towards himself.”  -Nigerian proverb

China’s deadly dull sounding “Third Plenary Session of the 18th Congress” begins this Saturday and due to some early hinting it seems that a more lively agenda may be on offer than the usual desiccated fare. Of course, I am not privy to what they intend to “discuss,” or more accurately “announce,” but then nobody in China is either. Whether Xi Jinping is going to throw the doors open to real reform (bludgeon the SOEs, emancipate the rural serfs and mandate two free egg tarts for every school child) or not, well, who knows? The media are blowing this up to be “big, really big” and words like “profound revolution” are being dropped on us like Ming vases. I would not waste time speculating about the tea leaves and find it all rather boring. As always, don’t expect too much and we will know when they tell us. This week let’s look at something far racier: Africa.

Africa is the world’s second-largest continent; the birthplace of mankind and many deadly diseases. Currently, there are 54 different countries in Africa. From an equity point of view, we want to concentrate on the largest by population; Nigeria.
