Re: Should Foreign Aid Be Privatized?

Linda Says...

Justin, perhaps it is best to think about how futile it is the to be discussing something that we all know will never happen.

The bulk of this money is already in the hands of the NGOs; how exactly were you thinking that it can be taken away from them?

Instead, people should be focussing their energy on achievable goals.

Getting that money from NGOs is not an achievable goal; so, why talk about it at all?

Tiba, That Was Precisely The Point. Take The Foreign Aid Money Away From The Government And The NGO's Assign It To Private Organizations To Manage It And Presumably Generate MORE Income From Profits. Brian Andrew 03/06/2011

Yes, If The Money Goes In The Hand Of Private Enterprises Haiti Will Have A Better Chance For Education, Houses, And Food. I Hope HAITI Too Will Have A Chance To Make Foreign Aid Money To Use For The People In Need. Marie Janty 03/04/2011
