520    "Over the past three decades, sub-Saharan Africa has 
       undergone promising changes. Most countries have 
       instituted regular multiparty elections. Military rule has
       been on a steady decline. With this increased stability, 
       Africa has seen unparalleled economic growth. So much so 
       that sub-Saharan growth rates exceeded those of the world 
       economy for the first two decades of the new millennium. 
       Yet, there are troubling trends as well. The vast majority
       of low-income countries are found south of the Sahara. 
       African states grapple with food insecurity, high 
       unemployment, poverty, poor infrastructure, environmental 
       degradation, and low integration in the global economy. 
       Nor has political liberalization been wholly progressive. 
       One-third of the states identified as 'not free' in 2017 
       by Freedom House were in sub-Saharan Africa. In many 
       instances, African presidents have been able to work 
       around multi-party elections and remain in power for two, 
       three, in some cases even four decades. Countries like 
       Burundi, South Sudan, Somalia, and the Central African 
       Republic have continued to be on the precipice of civil 
       conflict. And although there are fewer coups, since 2000 
       fourteen presidents have been successfully overthrown."--
