Abstract

A few years ago, I was at a talk by a distinguished African economist who was reminiscing about his life in Malawi post-independence. As a youthful leftist, he recalled, he and others would undertake campaigns at the university and shout slogans like “Destroy Capitalism.” With a twinkle in his eye, he ended somewhat wistfully: “The only problem was that we needed capitalists first before we could destroy them, and we didn’t have them!”
