  • Illicit Financial Flows and developent aid

    In February, a team of journalists unveiled a tax evasion system used by the Swiss subsidiary of HSBC. From 2006 to 2007, roughly 100,000 clients secretly channeled over $100 billion through HSBC accounts. Of that, over $13 billion came from roughly 7,500 clients in Africa. Billions of dollars were channeled from Egypt, South Africa, and Morocco. But significant amounts also came from poorer countries such as Eritrea, the Democratic Republic of Congo, and Liberia. Recent leaks about tax evasion are just the tip of the iceberg on Illicit Financial Flows (IFFs). The UN estimates the cost of IFFS in Africa at $50 billion each year, more than the total amount of Official Development Assistance (ODA) received by African countries. This represents as much as 25% of Gross Domestic Product (GD...

While small-scale aid and charities are doing important work in Africa, they are not able to provide the jobs that are necessary for long-term growth. Question: Which aid programs are doing the best work?Moyo:    I mean, I sit on a number of charities, on the board of a number of charities that are doing fantastic work in Africa.  And I'll come into details in a moment, but I think what's really important to stress here again is what these charities can and cannot do?  So, the charities that I sit on are able to go into these countries and actually provide bandage solutions intermediate solutions. They cannot provide jobs which is where it's really important for us to see much more involvement in the private sector and that's why I'm talking about this other form of aid.  And why it's hampered that opportunity.  Some of the charities that I think of doing some fantastic work are places like Room to Read, which has got a very targeted programs towards helping young people get to access to books.  Other charities, for example, I sit on the board of a charity called "Lundin for Africa" which is a very, very clearly defined mandate to try and support through lending projects in microfinance across the continent.  And the third charity that I worked for or I always...I'm a patron...for whom I'm a patron is called "Ark" Absolutely Return for Kids again, very targeted involvement providing anti-retrovirals to Africans...across the Africa, but again, very narrow and also no illusion that they are going to be providing a long-term sustainable growth to these countries.  So, there're some examples of some interesting programs. Question: What do you think of the Millennium Development Goals?Moyo:    Well, to the extent that we know, we're not going to achieve those goals, which is obvious 2015 is around the corner...you know, the architects of the Millennium Development Goals are themselves going around saying that you know, Africa is likely not to meet any of those goals.  So, I think those type of very sort of large, big scale large focus lofty goals tend to meet to be red herrings for the fundamental issues.  What I'm looking to see is much more active programs to implement the things that we know worked, the things that have made China, China and India, and South Africa and Botswana successful at creating jobs and reducing poverty.  That's what we need to focus our efforts on.  I think it's also important that we focus on spinning a more positive story about Africa.  Too many of the NGOs and celebrities and charities around are very focused on perpetuating a negative stereo type about the concept which cannot be helpful to raise the very young Africans that are coming up across the continent.  That's a no value to be negative and yet that's what we see across the continent.  So, I think, we just need to do more of what we know works and less of what we know does not work.  In fact there is no country on Earth today that has achieved economic development and reduced poverty by relaying on aid.  Not a single one, and yet we're pushing a product that we know doesn't work at the time when we know what does work and that's what the issue is here. Question: Is microfinance a better alternative?Moyo:    Absolutely, microfinance is one of the tools for development that I talked about in the book.  It's an amazing, amazing way of providing support to Africans and people all around the world to finance themselves and therefore be able to stand on their own two feet.  They can provide themselves an income, provide education and healthcare to their children.  There are numerous examples of this.  From Muhammad Yunus want to know about price from Grameen Bank and I just was on a discussion program with him not too long ago.  Even in this market, he's, you know, with all the challenges of the capital markets right now.  He's managed to raise $1 billion from the very small aid student, very small communities within Bangladesh.  It's a billion dollars in rural Bangladesh and you know, very, very little default rates and you know, tremendous success.  These are the type of programs that you'd becoming out of the multilateral institutions and they are not...we seen more of the same giving more money to African government.  Giving money to governments around the world whereas it seems to me we know what works and give us another example I talked about in the book.  It's an internet interface for...minimum of $25, you can lend to an entrepreneur anywhere around the world.  Again, helping to finance a job and again, lending is the operative word, gives opportunity for Africans on the ground, so actually meaningful change their lives.

However, developing countries will need significant assistance before being able to implement the exchange.

U.S. President Donald Trump is set to sign off on a budget deal for the remainder of the financial year. Trump has been forced to back-track on his plans to cut the humanitarian aid allocation by 28 percent. The decision comes after the U.S. Congress voted against his proposal to cut aid to Africa. During budget negotiations, Democrats managed to persuade Republicans to include 990 million dollars of additional spending to help counter famine-like conditions in South Sudan, Somalia, Nigeria and Yemen. Aid agencies are praising this decision. It covers about a quarter of the United Nations global appeal for the four countries. The U.S. is the largest contributor to the UN, paying 22 percent of the organisation's 5.4 billion-dollar annual budget.

Dead aid is a book written by Dambisa Moyo that discusses how financial aid in Africa, has actually hurt African countries. Damibsa Moyo completed a P.H.D. in economics at Oxford University, and hold's a masters from Harvard University's John F Kennedy School of Government, worked for the world bank as a consultant, and was born and raised in Lusaka, Zambia. Dead Aid was a very well written well rounded book that discussed the burden Africa had to face from financial aid. She discussed in detail how aid is used poorly in Africa, and often in corrupt ways. Her Ideas on aid in Africa are bright and insightful, and her sources very well documented. Her conclusion was that lending to Africa needed to be increased to business owners, aid needed to come to a halt, and probably other various topics that i'm currently over looking.
