Abstract

The resource curse is both real and harmful. With the wrong policies in place, natural resources have in many places turned into a curse instead of a blessing. In our previous blog post, we explained the origins of the resource curse and claimed that countries could avoid it by implementing the right policies. In this post, we present the very policies that governments need to implement to ensure natural resources do benefit Africa. For further reference, see Part 1 of our series on the natural resource curse.
