There's a tendency among Americans to view the continent of Africa as a monolith, failing to distinguish between different nations despite the continent's stunning diversity. And that extends to economies, as well. While anyone interested in increasing their risk profile for a chance at greater returns, investing in African companies can be an excellent chance given the rapid rate of economic expansion in the continent. But before you do, it's important to dig deep enough into any investment to really understand the company and the nation it's in.
The folks over at Masters-of-Finance.org have created this infographic to highlight some of Africa's strongest and weakest economies based on a few clear metrics.
