Reader’s Comment: Trade not aid is the answer to poverty


In response to Mark Ellse: Oxfam needs a lesson in market economics, Colkitto03 wrote:

Major charities can actually do more harm than good. When they are not stalking vulnerable old people in the UK, they are extending poverty in the third world.

They are as badly managed as our foreign aid budget.

Trade not Aid will best serve the third world.

We have done 50 years of ‘giving’ and how has that worked? The time has come to dump protectionist trade blocs like the EU and start giving poor countries a chance to trade fairly.
