Africa is confronting a major development problem in the beginning of the twenty-first century. I call this problem "Africa's Dual Brain Drain." The first part of the dual brain drain is the massive migration of Africa's educated and economic elites to the West or other parts of the world : "Africa's Migration Brain Drain." The second part of Africa's dual brain drain is the massive deaths of Africans in countries or parts of the continent where a relatively high proportion of the population can read and write, have high school or college diploma, and where the economies are relatively strong and active. I call the latter: "Africa's Terminal Brain Drain."
