Debt Relief - not helping Africa, says Ghanaian film

Last Superpower points to two articles from spiked online magazine saying that debt relief is not helping Africa to develop the industry it needs to be rich.

One article is by Ghanaian film-maker and teacher, De Roy Kwesi Andrew, called "You hate being affluent? Then swap with us", where he argues that industrial development is exactly what Africa needs, and that the debt-relief/Live8 approach is grossly inadequate.

Andrew's article is about a lecture tour he did in the UK, promoting the film "Damned by Debt Relief". A short version of the film, placed on YouTube by YouTuber worldwrite (the producers) is below:
