How did Einstein help create Eskom? Why can an Indonesian volcano explain the Great Trek? What do King Zwelithini and Charlemagne have in common? These are some of the questions Johan Fourie explores in this entertaining, accessible economic history spanning everything from human migration from Africa 100 000 years ago to the pandemic. Join Fourie on this journey through an African-centred economic history and the story of our long walk towards a brighter future.
