If there were only one area that I could put all development resources into, it would be in the implementation of real accountability. True accountability will spur competition that will in turn improve results--- or at least provide results that could be further analysed. At this time, very few developing countries have meaningful accountability. Real efforts and innovation are implicitly discouraged, forcing competent candidates to move away from government. One keeps hoping that we would get leaders who will do the "right thing". But I say that, we must instead put systems in place that forces all leaders to do the right thing. Without this accountability, I see development increasing at snail's pace. I would take real government accountability over all the development money any time.
