Scattered Assets seeks to be a conduit for facilitating a much-needed and provocative dialogue on optimal 21st Century Pan-African development, through understanding the leverage and power of resource use; a selected, 8-work anthology of the authors speeches and writings (from the vantage points of human capital, sociotechnology, culture, and economics) is used to discuss empowerment. The notion of African-Americans and the African continent becoming mutual resources is a major, recurring and explained theme. Also, the book offers a fresh perspective and analysis and thus, a new conversation on empowering African people and associated interests through prudent use of existing tools and assets.
