Jaded aid

We're now sitting at our great (metaphorical) drawing board, scratching our heads about the next issue of the magazine. We go to press in six weeks, and yours truly wants to do something on 'The Great Aid Debate' in Africa. Do hand-outs do any good at all - particularly since, as we covered quite a bit in previous issues, the continent's economy is growing? Who does aid really benefit? These are well-worn questions.
So searching for a fresh angle, I came across this article. Have a read. Then let me know you thoughts. I'll be at the drawing board if you need me.
