    What's the use of a credit if the next morning you can have a gang of men with assault rifles on your doorstep? I think it would work (works) in India, but not Sudan or Ivory coast.

    But all that means is that we need to work harder on it.

    No, no, SAM, they need to work on it too, but for the most par they don't. They just wait for the food to fall from the sky (literally).

    They just use whatever they get their hands on and don't think about the interests of others, particulary of people outside their tribe. As I said - neolithic societies.

    Imo all material aid should stop immediately, only intellectual and engineering help should remain and increase.
    All that they do with their food aid is breed even more thus increasing the amount of those suffering and living in poverty.

    I'd call it dumb mode. By working together the benefits are more than for each trying to survive on their own.

    Does it? You'd be surprised how motivating for selfishness chronic hunger can be.

    Not that non hungry people are less selfish

    Food aid is a problem, not a solution.

    Good idea like they did in Bangladesh. But it takes too long. Bangladesh is a good example. It will improve the dirt poor status, but still remain poor. The only way to improve is large scale production of goods and services. They do not have to build rocket factories. Even low tech Tourism can improve the bunch quickly. Do you know that Las Vegas visitor spending is $39 Billion per year, that is several times the GDP of most African countries.

    The trick is export, export, export. How do you think America got rich? Since first world war they sold all types of sh*t all over the world. Now this generation is eating that income up.

    Africans do not know how to convert raw material to high value final products. Once they learn that, it is easy. Remember Africa is full of natural resources and fertile soil with two growing seasons. And Africa has bigger land mass than USA, Europe and China combined (30.2 million km2)

    So it all comes back to investment in education.

    I am afraid so. Uneducated people are thought to be stupid. And hence the perception of Africans (Here we are lumping everybody into one group). But the truth is we have been there for the last 60 years from missionary to UN to USAID. We usually send idiots to teach there...so nothing happens. At the same time, we are uneducated about Africa too.
