About the Book

The book, Susu Economics: The History of Pan-African (Black) Trade, Commerce, Money and Wealth is one of the most thorough and exciting books which deals with the development of culture and civilization in ancient and prehistoric Africa, and how trade and commerce contributed to the migrations of Africans worldwide and the establishment of cultures and civilizations from the Sahara to India and China, around the globe to ancient Olmec Mexico.

This massive trade network contributed to building the wealth and influence of many ancient African kingdoms and empires such as ancient Egypt, Nubia-Kush, Wagadu-Ghana, Nok, Punt, Zimbabwe and many others. African wealth and influence also spread to parts of Europe when Africans settled parts of Ireland and England as well as Iberia, hundreds of years before Christ. The book examines the trade goods used and commodities traded for thousands of years.
