What If (A BIG IF)

I've always wondered what would happen if Africa managed to develop and become relatively wealthy. What would that mean for the IMF and the World Bank? The legions of NGOs working/vacationing in Africa? And what about the Bonos and Geldof's of this world? Would Sir Bob "Didn't-deserve-the-knighthood" Geldof revive his old group, The Boomtown Rats? Our poverty and hopelessness has opened up legions of opportunities to otherwise unemployable people, who would have struggled to find a job in their home countries.

Good rant! I wonder about that too.... Imagine if they didn't have us to bully (the IMF/World Bank ie); what would they do then??

And what if Africa actually considered the economic power she has just by having most of the world's raw materials, and actually started throwing her weight around?
