Default Draft Dayo or Eliza to debate Dambisa

If not specifically debate, then discuss. They both seem to think her advocacy of moving away from an aid model is wrong, so let them hash it out.

I agree with them that IF the money was put to proper use it could only ever help and improve the situations. Moyos argument seems to be that the open ended aid in and of itself acts as a drug to keep a society unresponsive to peoples needs. Where the governance has incentives to appeal to donors rather than its people.

In any case, in the places where more people have moved out of poverty and destitution, where has the aid model worked well?

What has worked at all?
