A New Blog on the Block

One of Nicholas Gruen’s favorite people, William Easterly has joined the blogosphere to keep the Aid bastards honest.

Today, I foist a new blog called Aid Watch on the blogosphere. The objective is to be brutally honest when aid is not helping the poor, but also praising it when it is.

Fro the record, I think William Easterly is a bit on the negative side, but definitely a useful part of the intellectual ecology of aid. His rebuke of Sachs was a bit excessive, but still on the money in lots of ways I thought. Easterly’s cri de coeur The Cartel of Good Intentions is a great eye opener I thought.
