Dead Aid Why Aid Is Not Working and How There Is a Better Way for AfricaAs the title suggests Dambisa Moyo s argument is that not only is foreign aid in Africa not working it is actually the main cause of Africa s failure to reach its full economic and social Trudy (Unconventional Hearts potential This is an interesting androvocative thesis and one that certainly challenges allot of mainstream thinking However if you are expecting that Dr Moyo will challenge conventional thinking with some hard evidence you may be dissapointed The book mainly consists of some mainstream free market economic analysis with very little in the way of real world facts and figures to back it up She occasionally cites some studies that supposedly support her oints without telling the reader what the studies were about or what they actually found And she seems to rely on Pithy Uotes And Anecdotes That Support Her Views Allot Than uotes and anecdotes that support her views allot than or hard evidenceIt s too bad because my sense is that some of her analysis is robably right However she simply doesn t take the time to back it up with much in the way of real hard evidence Ultimately Dr Moyo s book doesn t really deliver on its The Complete Dick Tracy, Vol. 7 promise Dead Aid in a well researched and convincing manner describes theast and current justifications for humanitarian and development aid in Africa the drawbacks and failures of this method and suggests several alternatives for the future As a layman in the field I appreciated the clear and coherent writing style and logical construction of the arguments As a layman though I also lack the background to objectively judge the value of the alternate If The War Goes On plans sheroposes I do have some uneducated opinions though First of all I cannot believe that her thesis was so controversial because much of it seems like common sense to me The idea that there s no such thing as money for nothing is widely valued throughout the world So why did the aid funding bodies believe that throwing free money at Africa would solve its roblems To me it seems obvious that you help someone by buying something from them than from giving them a handout If for no other reason than because there is a lot mutual respect between the arties in a commercial transaction than in begging and handing out which engenders resentment by implying that one arty has and the other has notSecondly it seems obvious that the aid rocess is deeply flawed because Moyo argues that there is a correlation between countries which receive aid and the excesses that the rulers of those countries allow themselves like Mobutu hiring the Concorde and Mugabe s wife s shopping trips But she doesn t explicitly say that Mobutu aid for the Concorde with aid money implying that there is uncertainty about which fund the money was funneled from If 1 million goes missing in Zimbabwe how is it ossible to not know which fund it came from Don t the aid agencies ask to see receipts In business you would never Cooking Solo pay for something without ensuring that you received the commodity that youaid for You would certainly not conduct business with the offending Makroekonomi party a second time It seems that aid receiving governments should at the very least have to account for their aid spendingThirdly Moyo argues that American subsidies to American cotton farmers have reduced the demand for cotton from Africa and that one of the best ways that the West could help Africa is by increasing trade But wouldn t Africa stand torofit by God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlepig (Bobby Dollar processing their cotton in house and selling the finalroducts to the West instead of selling raw cotton and then having to buy final Ask Anything, and Your Body Will Answer products like t shirts back from America Not to mention the carbon footprint ofroducts crossing the Atlantic several times instead of once The Caderea Constantinopolelui vol.1 pressure to buy and sell loca.
