We envision free, just, and prosperous African societies.

We envision a continent where people’s natural rights [life, liberty, and (self and property) ownership] are respected, and people live free from repressive and confiscatory policies. We pave the way to this future by developing and disseminating Africonomics.

It’s crucial to recognize that only with Africonomics can free, structurally just, prosperous, and dignified postcolonial African societies be built.

PIONEERING AFRICONOMICS

Pave the way to integrated, stable, and thriving African economies. 

The statist/socialist approach of the postcolonial era has failed to create stable and prosperous African economies. Africa must shift its philosophical outlook and embrace Africonomics to break free from the ruinous cycle of debt crises, inflation, tyranny, poverty, and dependence that Western statist models trap African societies in.

Africonomics presents a new paradigm and path forward for African nations. A fundamentally different economic model for achieving integrated, stable, and thriving African economies.

We produce insightful Publications on economic matters from the Africonomics perspective.

Free Enterprise

Afrindependent advocates for a free enterprise system because it is morally superior to the statist/socialist approach adopted in the postcolonial era, which is characterized by centralized systems of bureaucracy, coercion, and repression.

Since the statist approach was clearly proven repressive and ruinous, African economies would benefit tremendously by transitioning to a free-enterprise system through AfCFTA to achieve integrated, stable, and thriving African economies.

Free Trade

The AfCFTA is a remarkable achievement and a crucial step forward in the right direction. Free enterprise and free trade have long been integral components of Africa’s economic heritage, dating back centuries before the colonial era. Free enterprise and free trade are indigenous, not foreign, to Africa.

Afrindependent calls on African leaders to dismantle the numerous artificial barriers that suppress savings, investment, free enterprise, and free trade within and among African societies. This action is vital in paving the way to integrated, stable, and thriving African economies while fostering genuine peace, fraternity, and collaboration among African people.

Sound Monetary System (i.e. the nilar)

The nilar, a gold currency system designed for African societies, is the backbone of the economic model Africonomics presents for achieving integrated, stable, and prosperous African economies.

The monetary history of postcolonial Africa can be summed up in three words: chaos and ruination. The era of central bank-managed fiat currency systems under the fiat dollar standard has caused much turmoil and poverty in Africa. Instead of pinning hopes on a speculated BRICS currency, African economies should transition from unjust and ruinous fiat currency systems to the nilar, an entirely sound monetary system.

This monetary shift is essential, as the nilar provides a much-needed stable and trustworthy single currency to achieve integrated, stable, and prosperous African economies.
