Observations on the Geopolitical Neighborhood

Togo is a sliver of tyranny sandwiched in between the two stable democratic states of Ghana and Benin. As such it is part of a shrinking area of authoritarianism in an increasingly democratic region of the world. Looking across their borders the Togolese can easily see there is another and better way to run things.

Ghana's economy is doing great. Togo's has not been doing so great. I don't know much about the economic situation in Benin. But, my impression is that it is somewhere in between Ghana and Togo.
