What factors are hindering economic development in Africa?
Many things effect Africa's development, some could include the climate. The rain is either flooding the area or a drought is going on. also politics has an affect on Africa's development. There is a rebel group that makes it difficult to do anything in Africa, and also Africa has a very unstable government. Many people in high places are very greedy and basicly take all of the money from most of the population. Africa is acctually has much more potential to be rich than the rest of the world.

Of course slavery hindered the economic development of the south. Before the Civil War, the north and south worked together to supply each other with what either region lacked…. The north has a terribly short growing season, and rocky soil -- not a great way make a living trying to farm, so the north turned to indusrty and only kept small farms to supply their familys with food. The south, having so many plantations, infinate amount of slave labor, and for the most part great weather, kept to farming and grew cash crops. That's when a plantation would only raise one or two crops (such as wheat cotten tobacco etc.) for the soul purpose of selling. The south had very few industries since that was their way of life. That's what the south fought to preserve during the Civil War, not only becasue they wanted cheap slave labor, but because that was what they knew.
