Total Factor Productivity Growth and Human Development: the Role of Remittances in Africa
Journal article, Created By Agolla, Joseph Evans and Published By Inderscience Publishers in English language
Using panel data of 21 African countries over the period 2010-2014, we examine the effect of total factor productivity (TFP) on human development contingent on the level of remittances in Africa.

A Realist Africa in the Polemics of Climate Change and 'Carbon Free' Economy
Journal article, Created By Jegede, Ademola Oluborode and Published By Adonis & Abbey in English language
The assumption of the realist theory that survival and self-interest without more are the ultimate goal of each state in international politics and the liberals' viewpoint that international cooperation is in the best interest of a state are as valid and controversial in climate change discourse. Hence, the political choice which Africa should make in the light of increasing adverse effects of climate change, and in particular, amidst the tension of these two theories remains problematic and confounding.

Journal article, Created By Amusan, Lere and Published By Adonis & Abbey in English language
Globalism and globalisation are concepts that continue to generate mixed feelings in the 21st century. While some are of the view that it is the end of history, some see it as the beginning of history because Africa is, at best, left behind in the area of sustainable development. What the continent is experiencing now is what Samir Amin describes as mal-development. For total control of means of production, the West and some Asian states have been moving to Africa to grab land in the form of leasing and total buying out for...

This paper provides a systematic review of challenges to doing business in Africa. It complements the extant literature by answering two critical questions: what are the linkages between the ease of doing business and economic development; and what are the challenges to doing business in Africa?
