Rwanda, Inc.

How a Devastated Nation Became an Economic Modelfor the Developing World


Eighteen years after the genocide that made Rwandainternational news, yet left it all but abandoned by the West, the country hasachieved a miraculous turnaround. Rising out of the complete devastation of afailed state, Rwanda has emerged on the world stage yet again—this time with aunique model for governance and economic development under the leadership ofits strong and decisive president, Paul Kagame.

Here, Patricia Crisafulli and Andrea Redmond look atKagame’s leadership, his drive for excellence and execution that drawscomparisons to American CEOs and emphasizes the development of asophisticated and competitive workforce that leverages human capital. InRwanda, the ultimate turnaround, strong and effective leadership has made ameasurable and meaningful difference. Rwanda’s progress offers an example forother developing nations to lift themselves out of poverty without heavyreliance on foreign aid through decentralization, accountability,self-determination, and self-sufficiency. The authors also explore Rwanda’sjourney toward its goal of becoming a middle-income nation with atechnology-based economy and its progress in encouraging private sectordevelopment and fostering entrepreneurship while also making gains in education,health care, and food security—and all with a strong underpinning ofreconciliation and unification. As so many nations stand on the brink ofpolitical and economic revolution, this is a timely and fascinating look at theimplications of Rwanda’s success for the rest of the continent—and the world.
