sometime around the "feed the world" nonsense a newspaper chappie ........... caused a bit of a furore because he was against sending food aid to africa...
as he said (I paraphrase) "They were starving in africa before I was born, they've been starving in africa throughout my life and they're still starving in africa and sending them food aid is a watse of time until they've sorted out all their other problems"
That would be someone who knew what he was talking about, had been there, seen it, and wasn't afraid to speak the truth. The fluffy lefties hate people like that!

Dambisa Moyo, who is Zambian, wrote a book called Dead Aid (or something similar) in which she expounds very succinctly her theories as to why foreign 'aid' has done more harm than good.
