    Asian vs African nations

    My question is pretty simple. I have my answer or theory which I'll post later but I want to know what people think.

    Why do you think so many Asian nations were/are able to develop to the extent we see while most African nations are left in poverty and disarray?

    Could you be a bit more specific? Asia is rather a broad term, an entire continent. Afghanistan is in Asia, so is Japan.
    Thank you.

    hmmm interesting thread.

    I think humanity is in its infancy. Africa just happens to be the last continent to industrialise.

    it would be interesting to see how humanity is in 300 years. I say 300 years because that will probably be what the last 1000 years have been like on earth.

    One difference to consider is that the majority of Africa consists of former European colonies that were abandoned when their respective empires collapsed.

    It did not hurt to have countries in Asia totally decimated by war, rebuilt and invested in. Japan and Korea are two off hand.
