Imagining Africa

Just as we debated for years moving our inner cities from welfare to work, so to a similar debate now rages about Africa. Africa has received over a trillion dollars in aid over the past 60 years. Yet, its economics have worsened, its standard of living has deteriorated and the level of government corruption has multiplied. Now Dambisa Moyo has come forward with a new approach. An approach based on education, entrepreneurship, and the elimination of aid, both government and celebrity alike.

My conversation with Dambisa Moyo, author of DEAD AID.
