Lost to the editor’s pen…

Well, my latest post on DevPolicy was going to start with the following (note that the link is not totally work safe)…

Learning to speak Australian has been an eye-opener for me. Barely a year ago I thought that ‘thongs’ were underwear, ‘schooners’ ships and ‘Budgie Smugglers’ the sort of people CITES was set up to thwart.

But, alas, my editor (quite rightly) thought better of it. Anyhow, my most recent post on the folly of seeking one’s comparative advantage in aid is up. With a must-read being the comment made by a former AusAID staffer here.

Also, I have a guest post up on the New Zealand blog Public Address outlining what’s gone wrong with our aid programme since the change of government in 2008.
