The "Bottom Billion" is required reading for anyone involved in African economic development. It provides a framework within which policy advisors, technical experts and grassroots practitioners can see the way their work must come together to overcome the four traps that condemn a disproportionate number of African countries to be in the "bottom billion" of the World's population. His four traps, notably, 1) being landlocked, 2) suffering bad governance, 3) having bad neighbours, and 4) emerging from civil war or prolonged distress can be solved only if actions at the sub-national, national and regional levels come together. It is a call for leadership at all levels.
