Packed full of manpower, energy, and potential, huh? What's the literacy rate, level of education, STEM graduates as a percentage of population, political stability, infrastructure investment, etc.?The continent of Africa has a median age of 19.7 years old, which is the youngest worldwide.
Which means, the African continent (and the African Union as a whole) is packed full of manpower, energy and potential to become a powerful bloc on the world stage in the future.
This is the same "demographic dividend" drivel I see Indians spout, but at least they have the excuse of formally being a country. I see the African continent packed full of famines, humanitarian disasters, and 19.7 year-old cannon fodder for civil wars.
