Intentions are usually problematic… people act under good intentions at all times.

Even GWB thought he was doing the right thing, remember that, good intentions are not always the best thing. Mr. Mwenda speaks about the problem of foreign aid and the problem of structural motivation and economics. I think he nails the african situation on the head. I like his example of if you have 10 ph.d.’s they will never be as effective as an entrepreneur in the market. I’m not sure that’s true, but I think it is closer to true than not.
