Burma and Ireland finances
Today we blow the dust off Burma's ledger-books, and ask where's the money coming from to keep one of the world's longest-standing military regimes in power. As the country prepares for its first national elections in 20 years, is the government indulging in creative accountancy to hide its foreign earnings? Also as Ireland prepares for yet more financial pain, we ask one of the ministers applying the medicine whether he helped fuel the crisis in the first place. And our regular letter writer Wycliffe Muga meditates on the rising role of tourism in the management of Kenya's traditional tribal lands.
