Africa is poor and 5 other myths: Simon Moss

tedx

Simon Moss debunks six myths about poverty and asks a series of new questions to reshape the way we think about relief. He talks about poverty and how Africa is often branded as being poor; he explores the issues of aid, bad governance, education, overpopulation, disease, volunteering, charity overheads and food waste. Simon Moss has been to Malawi.

As citizens of a country that is considered to be one of the poorest in Africa, and that receives 40% of its national budget from aid money, I think every Malawian ought to watch this video and begin to think differently about how we see some of the issues explored, their causes and effects.
