Dr. Samuel E. Enajero Publishes Book to Discuss the Absence of Collective Institutions in Sub-Saharan Africa

Compelling and informative are words that best describe the book that not only offers readers a crash course on collectivism but also delves into conditions that’s didn’t allow collectivism to flourish in sub-Saharan Africa.


Collectivism is a solution to group interdependency.” Samuel Enajite Enajero, Ph.D.

Dr. Samuel Enajite Enajero published “Collective Institutions in Industrialized Nations: Economic Lessons for Sub-Saharan Africa” (Page Publishing; 2015), a book that compares the economics of sub-Saharan Africa with other countries, particularly in Europe and Asia, where collective institutions exist to usher in economic development and social prosperity.
“Collective Institutions in Industrialized Nations” describes the role of historical collective institutions popular in Europe and Asia that are compatible with today’s prosperity as compared to institutions in pre-colonial Africa.
“This book argues that there exists an important institution historically peculiar to all advanced nations,” said Dr. Enajero about the scope and purpose of his book. “This institution is conspicuous in practice as much in free market capitalism as in communist dictatorship countries of the world. That is the institution of social collectivism.”
Collectivism, according to Dr. Enajero, recognizes human interdependence, all-inclusive and altruistic society. It produces and enables men and women to create economic opportunities rather than wait for opportunities, thus creating the economic man and molding a nation to be an organic whole.
“Collective Institutions in Industrialized Nations” discusses the absence of collectivism in sub-Saharan Africa at length. Dr. Enajero wrote, “In sub-Saharan Africa, before the arrival of the Europeans, however, the political economy of kings, chiefs, few servants, and peasants portrayed economically uncooperative society.
“Taxes in pre-colonial sub-Saharan Africa were rare and, if they existed, were not designed to stimulate supply of economic resources or provide public goods. Economy was family-based and apart from periodic homage required of the ruled, there was no link between the elites and the peasants. Perhaps, massive embezzlements of public funds in sub-Saharan Africa’s modern democracies could also be due to the absence of collectivism at the state level.”
“Since collectivism and thus social services do not exist in sub-Saharan Africa, it is only rational that folks who make it to the government loot funds to provide social services to their family or a whole village.”
