Articles to Read

November 23, 2009

The recent issue of The Economist has some good articles:

Sex and Pharmaceuticals — how Pfizer is trying to up its market share by developing a Viagra-like drug for women

Monsanto: The Parable of the Sower — Debate between whether or not genetically modified seed research company (Monsanto) is “good” or bad”

Less Poor, Less Free — how the new Zambian president (Banda) is chumming up to Chiluba (Former Zambian President) who was recently acquitted of embezzling $95 million in public funds

Sierra Leone’s Corruption — progress in taming corruption?

Congo’s Constitution — The tag line of this one is just ridiculous: “Is Congo’s Joseph Kabila flirting with Dictatorship?” Flirting? Really? You have to ask?
