Chico, I'm delighted that Africa Can is back, and congratulations on a nice opening post. Just one question. The four part strategy you propose for making growth more pro-poor is perfectly sensible. But why have African policymakers not followed them sufficiently in the past, as your data seem to show? Is there a built-in bias against macro stability, against quality human capital (in favor of quantity), against rural areas and for capital-intensive resourc extraction projects (at the expense of cash transfers)?
