The surprising numbers: why Africa is a larger market than you ever realized.


If Africa were a single country, according to World Bank data, it would have had $978 billion total gross national income in 2006. This places it ahead of India as a total market. Africa would be the tenth largest economy in the world, ahead of every vaunted BRIC economy (Brazil, Russia, India, and China) except for China.
