Kenyan economist says, "Aid sucks."

Very interesting article with James Shikwati who explains how international aid to Africa does more harm than good.

Hm. It makes sense that a country needs to have self-sufficiency in order to maintain a living and stable economy. At the same time, suddenly removing the nurse-maid's teat might kill the kid before he learns to walk (even if he should already know how).

Please, someone smarter than me say something. I'm easily convinced by a compelling argument.
