Dambisa Under attack

ft.com: “A swell of opposition is building in the aid world to a new protagonist who has thrown down a strident challenge to the rock stars and liberal economists who have long dominated debate over foreign assistance to developing countries.”

It doesn’t surprise me at all. This is a critical problem for the ‘pro aid’ groups. If they don’t have poor people for their informercials and fliers, how are they going to get paid; who is going to foot the bill for their stays at Sheraton and four seasons; who is going to pay for their kids private school tuition; how are Bono and the likes get a sense of doing something. No surprise at all they are defaming Dambisa.

Dambisa, please keep it up; please don’t be discouraged; please fight on; please get the word out.
