Simon Moss: Africa is Poor and 5 Other Aid Myths

Simon Moss of the Global Poverty Project delivers his TEDxWarwick talk on some of the top aid myths including the one that says overheads are bad and he even tackles voluntourism. Though a bit jarring to some, I would suggest this as a must see for people why are newer to the aid field. Even if there are points where an individual disagrees, I think Simon is successful in presenting his ideas in a way that can force people to think hard about their held positions.
