James Fulford’s blog post African Governance, Then And Now, And Revealed Preference

From: Theodore Van Oosbree [Email him]

James Fulford quotes this from Barrons:

“I can testify that Africa is much worse off than when I first went there 50 years ago to teach English: poorer, sicker, less educated, and more badly governed." [ "Africa's Aid Mess",  December 2, 2013]

Ha!—I thought Paul Theroux was describing America when I read that line...until I looked closer.
