“>This article from Ghana Wed concerns the Millennium Development Goals in general, but more specifically, in Ghana. The article states that we need to take the MDG’s head-on and more seriously alter them to make them effective. The author talks about the economy and the fact that the MDG predicting a Sub-Saharan African Nation to double its economy was, in reality, setting it up to fail. You can’t make broad, sweeping expectations about numerous countries that differ greatly. This means that MDG’s are very difficult to be used as policy-making tools, viewing them simply as ideology is more appropriate. Yes, There are concepts in International Development that require Macro-viewpoints, however applying solutions to some of these problems in a formulaic manner can be detrimental. The author goes on to speak about (something that we touched on in class) how senior policy makers should not be the actors implementing the development projects since they are too far removed. This would be like the CEO of GM wanting to work in one of their plants (more or less). A system needs to be put into place that makes development operate more organically.
