    Enjoyed your lecture.
    Re: double-standards – every generation has its socially acceptable form of intellectual dishonesty or what is today called political correctness. E.g.’s such as anti-Semitism or misogyny were in the past mainstream mindsets. Fortunately our NA institutions tend to weed such attitudes – other places do not or cannot. This being so, it is up to each NA generation to renew itself and ‘fight the good fight’.

    I don’t ask for much, but do ask that you spell my name correctly – Kleinman, not Kleineman.

  • About Aid Watch

    The Aid Watch blog is a project of New York University's Development Research Institute (DRI). This blog is principally written by William Easterly, author of "The Elusive Quest for Growth: Economists' Adventures and Misadventures in the Tropics" and "The White Man's Burden: Why the West's Efforts to Aid the Rest Have Done So Much Ill and So Little Good," and Professor of Economics at NYU. It is co-written by Laura Freschi and by occasional guest bloggers. Our work is based on the idea that more aid will reach the poor the more people are watching aid.
