How to Wage the Peace

Fareed Zakaria's been making a lot of the same points about oil wealth, democracy and nation-building that I have here (see the link above), which I find eerily coincidental. Also of interest is an item posted by Brad DeLong, about a paper by William Easterly and Ross Levine, called "Africa's Great Tragedy: Policies and Ethnic Divisions". I've made some comments in the accompanying discussion area; hopefully others will make interesting contributions of their own.
