Those who attended Jonathan Starr’s Open Gates lecture (the “Failure of Aid Work and NGOs in Africa,” January 8th, 2011, 7-8 PM) will recognize the gist of Mr. Starr’s recent Wall Street Journal OpEd piece. It is a theme that Clark University’s Professor Richard Ford touched on as part of the Open Gates series on Global Problems last week, “Listening to the People: Development as If People Mattered,” April 12, 2011, 7-8 PM. (Video of Professor Ford’s lecture forthcoming.)
