Abstract: Africa is not poor, yet Africa has piqued the interests of economists for the last half century and there is a good number of academic literature on why Africa is poor. This is because for the resources available to Africa, both natural and human capital potential, the continent has underperformed abysmally. The Systems Theory Of Economic Development explains the current state of Africa. It explains why despite the resources available and the human capital potential, the African continent lags the rest of the world in every measure of economic and social development. The Systems Theory Of Economic Development also provides a framework of what Africa can do to write a new story where economic development is inclusive and provides economic opportunities for the young and able-bodied, reversing the ever-rising tide of public debt while providing a self-sustaining economic, social, and political system that works for all and sundry.
