Contrarian view on aid to Africa

A Kenyan Economist Says "Stop Aid to Africa"

Update: That is What Poverty Looks Like an inspiring read for free-market minded individuals.

Update 2: Mercenaries, Not Musicians, for Africa

Update 3: If you read just one post on this topic it has to be Live 8 Nonsense which leads one to the view: It takes a lot of establishment to be anti-establishment.

Update 4: Walter Williams sums it up eloquently in Aid to Africa (Hat Tip: Cleveland Townhall):

What Africa needs, foreign aid cannot deliver, and that's elimination of dictators and socialist regimes, establishment of political and economic freedom, rule of law and respect for individual rights. Until that happens, despite billions of dollars of foreign aid, Africa will remain a basket case.

Update 5: The United States of Avarice? details U.S. foreign economic aid.

Update 6: All Rock, No Action
