Defeating Poverty

There is a new book on defeating poverty in Africa and it is a shocker in its conclusions about the one trillion dollars spent in Africa in past attempts to bring that tragic continent out of disaster.

According to a Zambian woman who formerly worked with the World Bank, many of the good intentions and money have not helped Africa or Africans. In fact, the money has been the problem.

Go to the Wall Street Journal for a fascinating review of the book Dambisa Moyo.
