Dambisa Moyo and Alison Evans in the studio with Zeinab Badawi
In a HARDtalk interview originally broadcast on 5th March 2009, Zeinab Badawi speaks to economists Dambisa Moyo and Alison Evans.
The global financial crisis has made many donor nations think twice about giving development aid to Africa.
One young African economist thinks that doesn't matter.
She's opposed to aid because she believes it has perpetuated the cycle of poverty and hindered economic growth.
What is the best way for poorer nations to weather the current turmoil?
Zeinab Badawi talks to Zambian economist Dambisa Moyo and the incoming director of the Overseas Development Institute, Alison Evans.
