I was watching Joe and Becky on CNBC the other day, where one of their guests from Notre Dame was talking about their investments in developing countries which they considered were the right place to be in for the best returns. So I was very surprised when he said that eight African countries were the best places for low inflation and high profit, beating some of the more obvious B.R.I.C. countries. Surely this cannot be right AFRICA???
You have all seen the adverts, charities demanding your money to help the starving. You all remember Ethiopia, that country 50 years on is the largest recipient of food aid per head of population, a culture of dependency has been built up there. But some countries have thrown off the belief that it’s all the fault of a colonial past. Perhaps Gates and Buffet are not just giving money away?
Capitalism may be working, get rid of the corrupt politicians who keep their people in servitude and poverty and allow them to get some personal wealth that way they do not need charity, only countries run by despots require food to be supplied by the International Community.
Military intervention in Yugoslavia was acceptable then Iraq and Afghanistan, so why not Africa? Politicians are murdering their own people just because they come from a different tribe. It’s time the International Community stopped being racialist.
