Is Foreign Aid Harming Africa? (A TED Radio Episode)
“Most of the rich countries are attracted to Africa’s poverty rather than its wealth. And in the process they end up subsidizing our failures, rather than rewarding our accomplishments.” — Andrew Mwenda
This particular TED radio hour (the clip is actually only 18 minutes long) is an interview with the Ugandan journalist, Andrew Mwenda, who asks that we begin to look beyond Africa’s problems and focus on the real opportunities for creating wealth and happiness beyond a subsistence scale.
Its a great piece. If you want to watch Mwenda’s TED talk, we got it below or click here:
