Well, being in SA and working at the stock exchange, I have been following international financial events rather closely. We have been relatively untouched by the financial crisis - our Finance Minister Trevor Manual has been extremely sensible during his tenure. But it looks like the rest of Africa is doing well:

Africa is widely regarded as a world leader by measure of basket-case symptoms — war, disease, famine and humanitarian disaster. The continent has a greater share of its people mired in poverty than any other, and hosts the world's two greatest humanitarian crises, Darfur and Somalia. So it may come as a bit of a surprise to many that much of Africa is doing rather nicely, in some cases recording healthier economic expansion than in the industrialized world

What is the best place to be in times of Global Meltdown? It seems Africa, the Cradle of Mankind.
