Africa's lost opportunity because of automation

To be fair, Africa's really late into the game too. South Asian nations like South Korea, Japan, and China got into outsourced manufacturing jobs as early as the 70s or 80s. I don't think the need for cheap labor will ever go away but at this point, I doubt that the need is great enough to be a driver of change economy-wise. They're probably better off investing in education and STEM programs.
