Dead Aid: Why aid to Africa impoverishes Africans

Publié le par hort

What Dambisa Moyo forgets to mention in all her interviews is that the economic system has been divided up by race since the days of slavery.  Europe has intentionally given Africa that part of the economy which it knows is not wealth producing (the primary sector) and unless that is changed, it doesn’t matter how much money you inject into the continent or how many entrepreneurs receive money in Africa, it will not change  Africa’s underdevelopment or poverty. Corrupt African leaders are a minute part of the problem. No one wants to touch the real problem which is the slave system which has been left intact. I am in total agreement with her though that Africa does not need aid and it is African people who must actively begin to control their destiny and not leave it in the hands of the West. When Allison Evans says that getting Africa off aid is 'not desirable’ she is speaking for the West who do not want Africa off aid, as it is not in their interest. She prefers to work to ‘improve the present situation’ meaning to ‘maintain the slave system. ’ Unfortunately most people don't understand the underlying message which is really the main issue here.
