THE UNHOLY ALLIANCE ... FIVE WESTERN DONORS SHAPE A PRO-CORPORATE AGENDA FOR AFRICAN AGRICULTURE
Five Western donors including the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the US, UK, Danish, and Dutch governments, are bankrolling the Enabling the Business of Agriculture (EBA) project, implemented by the World Bank. The EBA’s goal is to help create “policies that facilitate doing business in agriculture and increase the investment attractiveness and competitiveness of countries.”1 To achieve this, the EBA benchmarks areas including seeds, fertilizers, markets, transport, machinery, and finance, to determine whether or not countries’ laws facilitate doing business in agriculture. The EBA exemplifies a growing trend in international donors’ aid programs, which have become powerful instruments to impose a market-based, pro-private sector vision of agriculture.
TPB Note: Production efficiency is a good thing ... but allocating ALL of the benefits of efficiency to owners (funders) and rather little to local workers and indigenous people is a crime against humanity.

Domestic-Resource-Mobilization-in-Low-Income-Countries-Nancy-Lee-2018
TPB observation: The problems of the Low Income Countries are huge ... the proposed solutions are tiny ... and essentially wrong anyway. The problem is viewed from the 'North' through the lense of financial economics. What needs to be done is to revisit the problems from the perspective of the potential of human capital and natural capital, and what needs to be done to remove the constraints that have been making it impossible to release all the potential that is possible.

Unfolding Truth Dismantling The World Bank’s Myths on Agriculture and Development
In reality, since the 1980s, the Bank has pushed an exportbased, neoliberal vision of agriculture that exposes farmers to the rules of volatile, competitive global markets and denies them adequate support from their governments. The Bank considers that states’ interventions on agricultural markets are an impediment to growth and discards examples such as Indonesia, where active price support for farmers’ production and trade interventionism prevented increases in food prices in 2008
TPB Note: A market based world would be fine IF Production efficiency is a good thing ... but allocating ALL of the benefits of efficiency to owners (funders) and rather little to local workers and indigenous people is a crime against humanity.

TrueValueMetrics (TVM) is an Open Source / Open Knowledge initiative. It has been funded by family and friends plus donations from well wishers who understand the importance of accountability and getting the management metrics right. TVM is a 'big idea' that has the potential to be a game changer leveling the playing field so the wealth and power is shared on a more reasonable basis between people who work for a living and those that own the economy and the levers of power. In order to be effective, it cannot be funded in the conventional way with a for profit business plan, but absolutely must remain an open access initiative.
WE WANT TO MAINTAIN AN OPEN KNOWLEDGE MODEL
A MODEST DONATION WILL HELP MAKE THAT HAPPEN
