This study examines the history of economic development in African society after the gaining of independence, identifying the major obstacles which stand in the way of the emergence of a healthy economic development environment today. This study should appeal to scholars interested in African history, political science and economics. using processes that took proper account of the pluralism of the societies, while civil society failed to press for institutions to control the state. These mistakes sent them off on paths of non-cooperation where ethnicity, poor political leadership, government corruption, and the absence of appropriate rights of citizens to consultation on economic matters have become serious obstacles to the emergence of good economic policy environments. namely: mobilizing domestic demand for good economic policy environment; strengthening cooperation, including bringing the state back in, to speed up the development process; ensuring country ownership in policymaking; reducing ethnicity; reducing government corruption, especially at the highest levels; improving political leadership; developing coherent strategies to face the globalization challenge; and accelerating progress toward rational regional economic integration.
