Annotation:
With the approach of the 25th anniversary of the legendary Live Aid concert of 1985, music fans will likely be re-living the memory of watching unforgettable performances by Paul McCartney, The Who, Led Zeppelin, Madonna, and U2. Perhaps some will wonder what ever happened to some of the less notable performers, such as the Thompson Twins, the Boomtown Rats, and Spandau Ballet. Unfortunately, few are likely to speculate on the whereabouts or the lasting effects of the 30-40 million dollars that was raised for Africa by the concert. Dambisa Moyo, a former consultant for the World Bank, presents a startling argument that Live Aid and other mass donations of funds to Africa have only exacerbated the poverty and strife of the continent. Moyo incisively explains that those donations are inevitably funneled into the coffers of dictators and corrupt political officials, thus furthering the gap between the classes and encouraging more crime and violence among the people. The constant flow of money from the west has by now become an expected source of revenue for many African nations, a certainty that increases the likelihood that the funds will be mismanaged, wasted, and embezzled.
