Cocoa in Côte d’Ivoire and ghana: Chocolate and neoliberal capitalism
This chapter focuses on the unequal economic relationship between Western corporations and West African cocoa farmers, specifically in Côte d’Ivoire and Ghana. On the one hand, cocoa generates revenue for both African nations, but for the massive export of this high-quality product to Western corporations, revenue returns are non-proportionate with negligible economic benefit. On the other hand, Western corporations make massive profit and revenue by turning African cocoa beans into chocolate and other products.
