The first is that protracted slow growth, with divergence from similar or higher-income cohorts, is not an outlier by historical standards. The stagnation of African incomes between 1950 and 2001 matches that of the entire non-African periphery during the last great phase African growth performance, 1960–2000 of globalization, between 1870 and 1913. Second, however, if we focus on the period since the Industrial Revolution, Africa’s divergence appears to be concentrated after 1950. Having weathered the disintegration of the world economy between 1913 and 1950, perhaps even with modestly greater success than the non-African periphery, African populations missed out on the unprecedented economic transformation that took place in the rest of the developing world after 1950.

1 Demography Both theory and evidence suggest that a population explosion is responsible for some portion of Africa’s economic divergence after 1960. 6, African fertility rates, age dependency ratios, and population growth rates were similar to those of other regions in the 1960s. The demographic picture diverged sharply over the next forty years, however, as public health improvements reduced infant mortality rates and raised life expectancies throughout the developing world. Outside Africa fertility rates fell rapidly enough that population growth declined.
