This blog article looks at the issue of the CFA franc zones. Through the CFA franc zones, France is able to control the money supply, monetary and financial regulations, and economic policies of certain francophone African nations. This, a form of subtle neocolonialism keeps African nations from making economic and social progress and has the ability to further breed 'dependency'.
