A good video on efforts to stop the looting of Africa's money. Check it out when you have some extra time.

I thought that guy made an interesting point with connecting some of the stolen money to the complicated tax and regulation laws in some of those African countries.

What Africans are not pointing out is that is Africans who are looting the country. Rich privileged Africans control the government and the economy, and they are looting the national resources, and then investing their profits overseas. Or, in fact selling their controlling interests to foreign investors. And, quite understandably, reluctant to make laws to prohibit them from doing so. Of course, American and European brokers and bankers have no objection to doing business with rich Africans who wish to invest, but that by itself doesn't turn Citibank or Credit Suisse into looters.

Many Africans are pointing this out.
