George Ayittey on the Cheetah Generation
Recorded: Monday, March 21, 2011

"The Cheetah Generation is the new and angry generation of Africans who can see that their leadership has failed them ... They're not going to sit there and wait for governments to come and do things for them. As a matter of fact, they're not going to sit there and beg for foreign aid, because they can see that every social need in Africa is a business opportunity. The Cheetah Generation is entrepreneurial." - George Ayittey, Economist (Ghana) Video produced by PovertyCure.Org
