The topic is interesting. If the money is reaching to the poor and invested in the development work and development is visible it must be a sign of democracy. If there was corruption if there was no development if there was no progress then that was dictatorship. Of course there could be problem in election or other things but WB and IMF at this moment should focus on the development activity because if there is development there will be education if there is education there would be a competent generation who can change the political situation. so strengthening the economy and development is the other (smart) form of supporting democracy and punishing the bad guys. Eg. supporting development in Afghanistan is found to be the best solution for counter-terrorism activity that fighting. so the same works to Ethiopia.
