Full Document Available in PDF

Summary:

Through his nonprofit ONE Campaign, the rock star Bono advocates Western aid to help impoverished people in Africa and elsewhere. Liberal advocacy groups have long argued that poor countries are helpless, that their governments are victimized by corporate exploitation, and their people are in need of help from Western governments and nonprofi ts. But these ideas are increasingly questioned and rejected. For all his good intentions Bono and ONE may be making bad conditions worse.
