Abstract

This article analyzes some of the fundamental differences between the two economic systems which have come into conflict with one another in sub-Saharan Africa: traditional African economies, based on community and communitarian ownership, and Western, capitalist-oriented economics, based on individual identity and individual rights. While the dire economic conditions prevailing in Africa have elicited various strategies and programs, a unique coping mechanism is developing within African Independent Churches. This not only poses a challenge to other churches, but may also provide alternative solutions for the problems that plague African economic growth.
