Give them the means to own and maintain their own businesses and the middle class will expand and take the country back just like happened here.
We should open our markets to poor nations but cut our aid budget. This will feed the poor directly while denying governments the cash they need for social engineering. Unfortunately fashionable opinion says that we should do the opposite- but when did progress ever depend on fashionable opinion?
How gracious to forgive the debt that the countries amassed. OOps, how much of that enriched war lords, corrupt officials, politicos.
I agree that in Africa, the people should have control over their own resourses...
I don't agree that there should be more sweatshops
if they want the labor, pay the people what their due, don't take advantage of people that are already disadvantage
I feel you that they need more jobs and opportunities but not more companies cashing in on poor people
Companys making millions and they pay their workers 7 cents a day. Thats wrong
Stuff like this has got to stop
...tribal war stuff also needs to really stop and they should consolidate their resourses instead of warring.
