Desmond Mushi is currently working at the Economic and Social Research Foundation in Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania.

This website is the continent’s modern, refreshing voice. It is a news and content hub for our brave leaders, power brokers, thinkers, artists, photographers, culture makers, youth, entrepreneurs and many others who are making a real and marked difference, now and in the future.

The African Economist is for all people who are optimistic about Africa’s future; those in cities and townships, universities, and vocational training schools, employed or not, in Africa or abroad. Interest is what matters to us, not who you are, where, or what you are doing.
