Abstract: The political economy of contemporary African states is perpetually dependent on those of the industrialized capitalist economies of Western Europe. Undoubtedly, this is attributed to early European imperialist incursion into Africa which led to the subsequent partition of the same territory in 1885. The devastating effect of the connection between the Global North and Africa is complicated by the following factors: the activities of multinational corporations (MNCs); the creation of the elite and bourgeois class; and, the presence of new entrants, like the North American countries of the United States of America (USA) and Canada, Japan, as well as China into the global industrialized capitalist economy.
