Fortunes - The Rise And Rise Of Afrikaner

The book is understandable, pertinent, interesting, and occasionally even humorous. The richest person in history was an African, Emperor Musa 1 of Mali (1280-1337), who ruled over the Malian Empire, an Islamic State the size of Western Europe that included Ghana and Mali and had an estimated wealth of $400 billion. The author focuses on the success of Afrikaner businessmen during the last three decades and offers interesting trivia in the introductory chapters. Then, a brief history of the advent of Afrikaner businesses in South Africa is given, as contrasted to the more typical Jewish and English businesspeople.
