Africa Investment: South Africa Losing Grounds To Nigeria

By Tosin Sulaiman

JOHANNESBURG, January 25, 2014 (Reuters) - South Africa could soon lose its status as Africa's biggest economy to Nigeria, but in the race to be the continental powerhouse being biggest may not be everything.

Nigeria, Africa's No. 1 oil producer, will complete a rebasing of its gross domestic product (GDP) by next month, its statistics office says, which economists estimate could expand the size of its economy by between 20 and 60 percent.

Russia’s Comprehensive Foreign Policy Needs More Than Just Fewer Diplomats

iMiiDBy Timofei Bordachev*

MOSCOW, January 18, 2014 (N-Gazeta) -- It is hard to expect coherent and easy to analyze general principles of global politics to emerge within the next few years and it is unlikely that they will take on any distinct or tangible shape even if they do. At the very least, the form they will take will be totally different from anything the analysts and international relations research were used to during the Cold War, i.e. the notorious “global governance” with its institutions, rules and international law. The world of nations is unlikely to develop institutions or laws, or, most importantly, obey these laws any time soon. Chaos, anarchy and a zero-sum game will remain the principles of international politics in the short term.
