The healthy countries in Africa are few. Disease is rampant. Economies sputter – when they’re not being pillaged by their “rulers for life” and their cronies. The accepted wisdom is the same as most other problems (public education, health insurance, etc.) – “Send more money!”
But at least a few Africans are tired of playing this game and want real deliverance. Der Spiegel interviewed Kenyan economist James Shikwati – check out his comments. (thanks to Vodkapundit for the link!)
UPDATE: Nicholas Kristof writes on the same subject – toa similar point – in the New York Times.
