"Break the Chains of Debt"
- Hello All,I hear that "Break the Chains of Debt" will be presented in Fort Wayne (November 7, 6:30 p.m. @ 2810 Beacon) and Indianapolis.For whatever it is worth, know that George B.N. Ayittey, Ph.D, President of Free Africa Foundation
(http://www.freeafrica.org/) was on PBS discussing economic conditions in Africa about a year ago, during which he proclaimed that debt relief was of no benefit to the poor in Africa - instead the ruling wealthy benefited. Take this point for whatever it is worth. If Ayittey is correct, I recommend that the activists be certain to avoid serious unintended negative consequences in efforts to free the poor.Also, of possible interest to these and other activists is the link to the regional societies that belong to the International Society for Ecological Economics http://www.ecoeco.org/region/region.htm.Greg
