    Desta, Asayehgn, (Ph.D), Distinguished Professor of Managerial Economics, Dominican University of California.:- In an era of unprecedented world-wide economic growth, it is interesting to note that the richest fifth of the world’s people consume 86 percent of all goods and services while about a fifth of the world’s poor population (1.2 billion people) still live on less than US $1 a day and almost half of the world’s population live on less than US $2 a day

    Comments on Ato Gebru Asrat and Dr Hailu Araya of Mederk recent interview with the private media

    comment:  Some of the so called private presses in Ethiopia have been more deterrent than helpful to promote "mechachal" and the building of democratic culture in the country. In an ideal world the private press itself as well as citizens should have denied such publication to exist by denying ears and eyes. But Ethiopia is a young democratic country and lacks such power thus why ETV may have been forced to do an expose on some of the private press performance over the years. However the State Media should be very careful not to instill fear on the private press and not to appear favoring one paper over the other in doing such programs.

    Aite Amanuel, the sanction is against the one man regime that thousands of Eritreans are fleeing from daily. Join the world community and condemn the dictatorial regime and demand freedom and democracy for Eritreans !
