Quotes

" But the picture on the ground is complex . In Burma, also known as Myanmar, a growing measure of democracy and economic reform coexist with a virulent strain of Buddhist nationalism.“There’s an inability in London and Washington to entertain two contradictory narratives about this country,” said Richard Horsey, a Rangoon-based analyst and former International Labor Organization representative to Burma. “That’s one reason why Rakhine is so dangerous and so potentially corrosive to the U S -Myanmar strategic relationship.”The risk, Horsey said, is “making the relationship hostage to the events in Rakhine, which the central government does not have the ability to fully control .”" When I read "it is complex" i know that someone is about to justify a massacre or repression
"Houngbo did a lot of work in Dhaka after the tragedy last year. The first anniversary of the Rana Plaza victims marked his visit" Md Shahidullah Azim, Vice-President of Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA), told BSS today
...The “ 24/7Wall St . "says human trafficking is the world’s second most lucrative illegal activity while " Forbes " places it seventh behind cargo theft and cigarette trafficking. Ann Jordan , American University’s Director of the Program on Human Trafficking and Forced labor says that she, a colleague, and two reference librarians were unable to find one article “that contained any evidence to support the [original Interpol] claim” because “many people confuse smuggling and trafficking.”"
...Flyers Sports Illustrated 'Scandal' recap: "The Price of Free and Fair Elections Entertainment Weekly But government aid can only reduce the suffering of the poor; it usually can’t make them escape poverty permanently. We know that from watching what has happened in the developing world over the past half century. Those countries that have tried to use wide-scale state programs to alleviate poverty—such as India—have not achieved results as quickly as nations that did not, such as Singapore and South Korea. (See my recent piece on this subject.) Generally, the high-performance economies of East Asia didn’t fight poverty by playing Robin Hood—soaking the rich and handing out cash to the poor. There is no reason why we’d have to do that today. "
