Cowboy Capitalists (Africa) - VICE MEDIA



Man has been displacing himself in the pursuit of economic reward since the dawn of time. My own forefathers left Gujarat to move to East Africa for the promise of a better life. In some ways many of my friends and I have relocated to Asia-Pacific from UK/US (albeit more pull than push) to explore economic opportunity. Who knows - maybe our grandchildren will think it perfectly reasonable to migrate to the moon and explore opportunities there?

This VICE documentary looks at some people who are embodying the spirit of hustle to do the same in Africa.
