Eleni Gabre-Madhin: Building a Commodities Market in Ethiopia

The lady resembles or sounds like a neo-con economist who maybe using "peasant marketing" inorder to separate the peasant from his crops via a market mechanism. Many modern economist insist that comodity markets are the final step towards becoming an integral part of market driven policies.
The lady needs to come clean in that no one majik system liberate the poor. The comodity market
in south Africa has not done much to help poor Africans there.

I am not to sure I agree with this comment. Have we become so cynical that we have come to see every potential idea as a threat to our ideals of the free Ethiopia??? I prefer to give this lady a chance not only for the farmers' sake but because I know that tomorrow someone might be questioning my motifs of all my well-intentioned visions as well.
