FAO Quotables

"But being right, even morally right, isn't everything. It is also important to be competent, to be consistent, and to be knowledgeable. It's important for your soldiers and diplomats to speak the language of the people you want to influence. It's important to understand the ethnic and tribal divisions of the place you hope to assist."

FUUO loves "Lighting Up Africa"

So, FUUO was a little late to this party, but I finally got around to reading my July issue of FORTUNE and came across this excellent  and short article by Brian Dumaine.

The article shows how empowerment of those in need (in this case through microloans) can be successful vice dumping billions of unaccounted for dollars into often corrupt governments.  Perhaps the best part about the entire article is the picture is shows of the young child using the lighting to do homework!  Imagine that!
