    Out of the Bretton Woods
    When China proposed the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) in late 2013, it hoped to offer a regional alternative to the Bretton Woods ...The similarities between the AIIB, the IMF, and the World Bank are apparent. But there are a few key differences. Western aid and development efforts are geared toward spreading liberal democracy and their own institutional frameworks. China, on the other hand, has stuck to its policy of distancing itself from the domestic affairs of other nations. In fact, the AIIB’s Articles of Agreement have remarkably similar (and broad) operating guidelines to banks within the Bretton Woods framework, but bar members from influencing political affairs.

    The secret to Ethiopia's counterterrorism success
    After the fanfare accorded to the United States President Barack Obama by Kenya, the last stop was Ethiopia. Of grand symbolic importance, Obama's visit to East Africa was clearly historic, as he is the first sitting US president to do so...

    National Endowment for Democracy is first ‘undesirable’ NGO banned in Russia
    Washington-based nonprofit funded largely by US Congress, is the first banned group under a law against ‘undesirable’ international organisations...[Why is NED despised almost everywhere it is involved? If promoting democracy is its real intent why are countries that have experience NED help/involvement mired in trouble or barring them one by one? Time to rethink NED's imported democracy good or bad is going to be always bad! Dr Merara an opposition figure from Ethiopia who may have been trained by NED recently failed to even pick his voting card in time and did not vote at all in the recent election. Is this what NED can be proud off?]

    Why repeated complaint on the Investment Climate in Tigrai?
    Gebremedhin Gebru July 30, 2015

    Not the whole truth
    Recently, I have reflected on these issues... President Barrack Obama’s two great speeches in Africa last weekend;

    Ethiopia Agrees on First Deal for Privately Produced Electricity
    The state agreed to purchase power at 7.53 U.S. cents per kilowatt hour in an accord signed on Monday during President Barack Obama’s visit to the Horn of Africa nation... We understand geothermal power is more expensive to develop and maintain production but is Ethiopia buying power from such source only to sell it to Kenya and Sudan at a much lower rate? A layman question that needs an answer is: What is the per kilowatt hour Ethiopia promised to sell to Kenya, Sudan and others? We could be wrong but we heard it was less than 6 U.S cents! It is our land and our natural wealth and at the very least the company should be allowed to make its profit but should relinquish the ownership once it has recovered its initial cost!

    On Green Energy, Ethiopia Leaves U.S. in the Dust
    President Obama’s state visit to Kenya and Ethiopia has involved a good deal of scolding ...On some matters, the chiding should go in the other direction. On the issues of green energy and climate change, Ethiopia has announced initiatives that put the United States to shame...
