simple development wisdom

'you can't donate people out of poverty.'

and that is, pretty much, why foreign aid won't work. sorry fans of the .7% gdp to foreign aid (of which i used to be), i just don't think it will work. it may have paid my salary and pay my salary again in the future. but i no longer have faith it will work.

thanks, paul polak and the hour with george stroumboulopoulos.

Thanks for passing that on. Amazing how we tend to over think everything isn't it? He is so right.
