Book Review: Africa in Chaos by George B. N. Ayittey, by Mwangi S. Kimenyi, The Freeman, Apr 1999
"George Ayittey is one of a few African scholars committed to advancing the ideals of classical liberalism. ... Ayittey is critical of the commonly proposed solutions to the crisis in Africa. He argues that foreign aid and loans such as those advanced by the international organizations have no benefit in the long run."
