It is important to remember that throughout Global Afrikan history, inclusive of continental Black Afrika, Austronesia, Melanesia and the Americas, prior to the predatory expansion of European Nation-states, nations and kingdoms kept the domestic sector separate from the international sector of their political economy. The international sector was small and dominated by the national leaders, generally focused on the trade of a natural resource(s) that was little valued in accordance with the culturally shaped tastes and needs of the people with those tastes and needs being met largely internally.
This separation of the domestic sector- food, housing, shelter, value determination [price] etc., from the international sector is a prerequisite for free and independent Global Afrikan nations. The international sector becomes the dominant sector of a nation following conquest, at which point the conqueror reorganizes the political economy of the conquered state, expropriating those resources [human & natural] from the conquered state deemed valuable for its own exploitative uses in its home country.
What had once been a self-reliant, self-sufficient state with a domestic economy dominated by self-sufficient, autarkic small agriculturalists, horticulturists, pisciculturalists and nomadic pastoralists, and the forward and backward economic industry linkages associated with each, growing, extracting and raising for their own family and local market short and long term needs, was altered by the conqueror with the better part of their domestic produce now being expropriated by the conqueror and shipped to the markets of the conquering nation-state.
Herein, are the origins of an international political economy dominated by the conquering nation or nations. True independence of Global Afrikan nations requires the overthrow of the conqueror and expunging of the foreign installed and foreign trained local elite along with the cultural, religious and political economic institutions of the conqueror and the complete and total re-Afrikanization and reorganization of the now liberated national political economy complete with land redistribution favoring small-holders and land tenure system reconstruction.
