Testing, testing, 1-2-3. Oh, the post has appeared on the blog...
Um, hi. I'm new to this blogging thing, though I do run www.investinginafrica.org, which is being updated and will be really good when it completed around, um, April.
So here's the sales pitch for this blog: Sub-Saharan Africa is going to be an economic success story, to rival China or India. Great Lakes Economics tells you why it is going to happen, and challenges negative reporting about the continent. It describes where the booms are happening, and who and what is driving them. The blog will often ramble into other African and economic topics.
The "Great Lakes" parts describes the area of central Africa surrounding Burundi and Rwanda, which will feature on the blog frequently.
Hope you find it interesting, rewarding, or lucrative.
