where are the african governments in this debate?

I am a regular reader of Bill Easterly’s Aid Watch blog. I like his skepticism with regard to the efficacy of aid in the developing world. But every time I read something by him I am always left wondering; what do African finance ministers’ think? I would appreciate having some opinions from the people he keeps writing about – because otherwise he is no better than the WB or IMF clowns who conduct their business from a distance without local input. Easterly’s solutions-based approach could do with a little bit of input from third world government officials.

  1. Do not wait for an answer. No one dares write against the masters who pay.

    In any case aid keeps them too busy to think. They have to talk to 10000 consultants, go do development conferences in Rio, Nairobi, Bali……

    Finally if they do talk out loud who is going to allow them to conferences and give them consulting contracts?
