Looks Good

I saw Ms. Moyo, the author of Dead Aid: Why Aid Is Not Working and How There Is a Better Way for Africaon CNN yesterday. She's got an interesting perspective. A former World Bank economist, Moyo believes that aid does more harm than good in Africa. She feels if the aid stopped, so would the corruption and new, innovative solutions to serious problems would result. I remember a class in grad school with a woman from South Africa who asserted the same idea. I'll read this once I finish the stack of books I got today at the library.

With Moyo yesterday was the author of The Blue Sweater: Bridging the Gap Between Rich and Poor in an Interconnected World, who did strike me as well-meaning but ineffective.
