"Dollars & Danger: Africa, the Final Investment Frontier"
Rahm Emanuel warned that "you never want a serious crisis to go to waste". And the greatest economic crisis since the Great Depression may be the investment opportunity of a lifetime in one of the world's most dangerous places: Africa. CNBC's Erin Burnett spent a year traveling to the world's richest continent to find out why some investors are doubling down.
There are dollars: Africa is home to more gold, cobalt and diamonds than anywhere else in the world and sells more oil to America and China than the Middle East.
And there is danger: from Libya - a former state sponsor of terrorism...to the Democratic Republic of the Congo - where more people have died in war over the past decade than in any conflict since World War II...to Nigeria - where militants have declared "all-out war" over oil. America is battling China for influence in Africa. But which country is winning?
Travel with Burnett and enjoy unprecedented access to some of the most dangerous countries in the world, Fortune 500 companies putting billions on the line, and intrepid investors who say the reward is worth great risk. A CNBC original documentary, "Dollars & Danger: Africa, the Final Investment Frontier" on June 10th at 9PM, 10PM and 1AM ET.
