Since COVID-19 began, there have been several African declarations made calling for deep structural reforms to enhance medical and economic resilience on the continent. Real Progressives joins Fahdel Kaboub and colleagues to propose  specifics – particularly a call to enhance African economic and monetary sovereignty. Hence, we have an open letter that could use all the signatures it can get. Please add your name!
Fadhel Kaboub uses the MMT lens to explain the interconnectedness of the lack of monetary sovereignty, lack of food and energy independence, and lack of political power.
