The Anatomy of the Resource Curse: Predatory Investment in Africa’s Extractive Industries

In this latest ACSS Special Report, "The Anatomy of the Resource Curse: Predatory Investment in Africa's Extractive Industries," J.R. Mailey delves into the often murky linkages between senior government officials, unscrupulous natural resource investors, and the loopholes they exploit in the international financial system.

By tracing the actions of the Hong Kong-based Queensway Group, a major actor in Africa's extractive sector, through case studies on Angola, Guinea, Tanzania, and Zimbabwe, the report provides a detailed portrait of the mechanics that perpetuate the inequitable development, weak institutions, and instability so frequently observed in Africa's 20+ resource-rich countries.
