• Dambisa Moyo: Stop Sending Aid to Africa

    Complete video at: http://fora.tv/2009/06/05/Uncommon_Knowledge_Dambisa_Moyo Economist and author Dambisa Moyo responds to her critics, explaining the long-term impact that charitable HIV/AIDS programs will have on building sustainable economies in Africa. She theorizes that such financial contributions allow African governments to be dependent on other world powers. ----- During the past fifty years, more than $1 trillion in development-related aid has been transferred from rich countries to Africa. Dambisa Moyo asserts, however, that this assistance has made African people no better off. "Africa's real per capita income today is lower than in the 1970s, with over half of the 700 million Africans living on less than a dollar a day." Eschewing the "glamour aid" of celebrities s...

    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.

    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. Subscribe to us on YouTube: http://ow.ly/Zvqj...

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

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.

During the past 2 years, the CCP has provided more than 5000 scholarships to African nationals. It has also founded 31 Confucius Institutes, in 26 African counties. Scholars highlight that the CCP government spends the Chinese peoples hard-earned money in exchange for the African countries votes in U.N. ballots. According to reports, the CCP uses the name of Confucius to infiltrate into Western countries. They teach authoritarian culture and nationalism in their books, such as, "loving the party is patriotic" in its books. Let's hear the details from our reporter. "Xinhua News Agency" reported that the CCP has founded Confucius Institutes in 26 African countries. In some countries, Chinese has been included in professional degree education systems, and in the college credit system. In the past two years, China has provided 5,710 government scholarships in Africa. It has launched an "African Talent Plan" which aims to train 30,000 talented people in Africa. It has provided 18,000 government scholarships. It also aims to build cultural and training facilities in Africa within the next 3 years. Gong Lei, an independent Shandong writer pointed out that the CCP has always invested heavily in Africa. This was even in Mao Zedong's era, as well as in the Cultural Revolution, and through the 1970's and 80's. Gong Lei: "I think that the main reason why the CCP invests in Africa, is that the CCP wants the ballots, It wants to have some supporters in the U.N. This is part of its money politics. So, its investment in Africa can't have any meaning or profit. It's spending the hard-earned money of the Chinese people in exchange for ballots. In fact, the Chinese people are living in dire straits, but the CCP doesn't care." In recent years, the CCP entered Africa via two channels; economy and culture. It wanted to increase its influence. 2011 was the third consecutive year that China was Africa's largest trading partner. It's total trading volume is a new record of 166.3 Billion USD. Approximately 2000 Chinese companies are directly invested in Africa, with a total of 14.7 Billion USD. As a single country, China's loan to Africa is higher than the International Monetary Fund. He Guoquan, a Guangzhou artist: "It is wiping gold on its face. It's establishing its image. It doesn't care how much money it spends. The CCP has money. Every year, it launches the Olympics Games Expo. It isn't afraid of spending money. It wants to create a great image, and doesn't care about spending money." The Confucius Institute was founded by the CCP Chinese office, This office directly reports to the Ministry of Education. According to the Confucius Institute's website, it has 387 institutes and 509 primary & secondary schools based all around the world. By the end of 2010, its totally investment was over 160 Million U.S. Dollars. Observers think the CCP uses the name of Confucius, and through the method of Chinese education instills CCP ideology, to have people's "left hand grab Confucius, and their right hand grab Karl Marx". In July 2009, Yao Zhe, a teacher from a Chinese school in South California told "The Epoch Times" that the school she worked for uses the textbooks from "Confucius Institute". She said the CCP government promotes its authoritarian culture and nationalism mindset. It has things like "Loving the party is patriotic" in its books. Almost all Chinese schools in North America use its textbooks. It's like a "soft Cold War" and "battle without Smoke" that is applying brainwashing unknowingly. On May 17 this year, the U.S. State Department announced that all Chinese teachers who work for the Confucius Institute and hold a J-1 Visa must stop teaching and go back to China by June. The U.S. State Department announced that all the teachers who hold J-1 Visa are not allowed to teach in public or private primary and secondary schools. They are only able to teach Chinese in a certified secondary school. 《神韵》2011世界巡演新亮点 http://www.ShenYunPerformingArts.org/

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.

Quietly going about making a difference. This is how to do it, not sending aid to corrupt governments. Go into the villages directly and do it yourself.
