African economist says: "For God's Sake, Please Stop the Aid!" (SPIEGEL ONLINE - News)

While the rich think they are helping the poor, they are making the problem bigger and bigger.
Why is so difficult to understand that the #1 problem in Africa is CORRUPTION and COMUNISM?
While exists guerrillas and un-democratic leadership in the area there will be no chance for finishing the poverty.
Why don´t people focus on the real problem instead of wasting so much time and resources in these kind of rock´n´roll geriartric hall of fame?
Do they forgot the infamous "OIL for FOOD" SCANDAL?

Hey, Bono, take off the sunglasses and see the real world for a change...
