Liberty Discussion on Foreign Aid

Samriddhi, The Prosperity Foundation will be conducting  Liberty Discussion Series on 26 May 2016 at Gaia Restaurant and Coffee Shop, Thamel at 5:30 – 7:00 pm. The discussion is on ‘Does foreign aid work?‘ by Christian Bjornskov. Please click here to read the article.

‘Despite widespread growth and unprecedented prosperity, almost a billion people live in absolute poverty. An entire industry has developed with the sole purpose of helping these people. Yet, many commentators and politicians claim that still not enough is done.

If aid did what official agencies and politicians claim it does, one would perhaps expect both Africa and Asia to be economically thriving and fairly rich by now.’

As always, how we roll during the discussion is the same. It is a pre-requisite to read the articles to sit in the discussion. We will begin by hearing from everyone what is his/her favorite line/idea in the whole article. So please highlight your favorite lines as you go through the article.Then we will move on to talk about things you did not like/do not agree with and raise the points you would like to discuss.

As there is a larger pool of invitation going out, the maximum we can accommodate is 12 people. So a confirmation email from your side would help us with the arrangements. If your time allows and you are willing to come to the discussion, please simply write a one-liner and send it to [email protected] or at 9841442433.

We look forward to a lively discussion as always.
