@Undustrial - You insist that helping the poor and economic development need to be tackled seperately - but to my mind, doesn't helping the poor without providing opportunities to work and earn an income just equal more handouts? Is there a third option I have not considered? To my mind, we can offer all manner of help to those who are poor and hopeless, but in the absence of meaningful growth in the employment base, I don't see how such programs would do anything other than swell public assistance rolls. Is there soemthing I'm missing?
