Oasis Kodila-Tedika () and Simplice Asongu ()

No 3007, Working Papers 1 from Office Of The Chief Economist, Development Bank of Nigeria

Abstract: One of the most disturbing contemporary episodes in human history that has been decried globally is the recent Libyan experience of slave trade, where migrants captured end-up being sold as slaves. We contribute to the understanding of this phenomenon by investigating the role of cognitive human capital in slave trade. To this end, we use the historic intelligence and slave trade variables respectively, as the independent and outcome variables of interest.
