Dennis Prager posted this article on Facebook. I’m reposting here because I enjoyed it and I think you might.
In this article, SPIEGEL, a German news magazine, interviews James Shikwati, an African economist who wants the the foreign aid to stop. My liberal friends will say, “This guy is crazy!” while my conservative friends will say, “Duh. We’ve been saying this for years!”
This is the money quote for me:
SPIEGEL: Would Africa actually be able to solve these problems on its own?
Shikwati: Of course. … Africa existed before you Europeans came along. And we didn’t do all that poorly either.
