Mathematical Modeling Not That Simple!


Thanks for responding to what I'm suggesting, Onuah Francis. You totally missed the import of what I said: that in trying to solve Ghana's & Africa's problems, we must deliberately dwell on our futures, without necessarily forgetting the the past. Of course, the sustainable inputs and the high points of our history could be extrapolated as guides in designing our futures, in addition to using computer modeling.

It is rather unhealthy to talk about our challenges by focusing solely on the past without engaging in narratives about where we headed. For starters, it wouldn't hurt teaching our youngsters about futurology.
