Hippos, Cheetahs, and the Passing of the Development Paradigm, A lecture by Professor Seth Singleton

Westerners have been taught to think that they are responsible for poverty, violence, corruption and other African ills, and that the solution is more Western aid and paternalism “helping” Africans.  But the post-colonial “white man’s burden” now perpetuates African problems. As Africans realize their continent needs a revolution in governance the reform must be built by Africans from Africa’s own traditions. Come hear what Professor Singleton has to say about this.
