A response to Kristof’s DIY aid article
Posted on October 27, 2010 at 5:22 am
Last week Nicholas Kristof wrote an article titled The D.I.Y. Foreign-Aid Revolution for New York Times Magazine. I’ve been asked by several readers for my thoughts on his article. I’d planned to blog on it today, but the recent hubbub around TOMS Shoes led to me blog about that instead.
Luckily, Dave Algoso wrote an article for Foreign Policy and beat me to it. Here’s his article, Don’t Try This Abroad, which does a great job of explaining much of what I feel about Kristof’s article.
