Abstract Advocates of aid to Africa often point out that, because the continent's poverty is so deep and its problems so great, even a relatively small amount can accomplish a great deal. Skeptics, however, charge that much of the money given to help Africa has been stolen by corrupt African leaders and actually keeps the continent from advancing. Does aid to Africa undermine people's ability to fend for themselves and do more harm than good? Rethink your point of view with this Intelligence Squared U.S. Oxford-style debate.
