This essay starts with the recognition that globally the development strategies implemented in Africa since independence have neither aimed at achieving the Priority task of an agricultural revolution, nor really aimed at any significant industrialization, but basically extended the colonial pattern of integration in the World Capitalist system. The catastrophic results are now obvious; moreover the Western inspired policies of so-called "readjustment" to the new conditions created by the global crisis (through the IMF and World Bank recipes) would only worsen the case.
