Some readings from couple of weeks ago - saving Africa and/or saving homeowners

Gregory Clark discusses saving Africa. Do we help African countries by giving them more and cheaper medicine, better-yielding crops or do we actually condemn them for eternal poverty by doing that. Should we see infant mortality as part of the problem or as part of the solution?

Tallinn's mayor and the leader of Keskerakond Edgar Savisaar is not alone in rushing to bail out not-performing home loans. He has a lot of soul-mates on the other side of the Atlantic. Read here and here. Interestingly none of these ideas makes much sense. Or am i just reading the wrong sort of blogs?
