Thanks Nick for stating what many people fail to get from Moyo’s arguments. I find that perhaps her most compelling argument is the danger of having a system of developmental aid with no time frame for its execution.
But again there’s the problem of the industry: much of the criticism of Dead Aid has come from people and organizations involved in what she’s criticizing in the first place. If we were to suddenly stop the business of giving aid to Africa, you got to wonder what all those western organizations and thousands of people they employ would do.
