Call to focus on Africa's bottom billion

Paul Collier, author of The Bottom Billion: Why the Poorest Countries are Failing and What Can Be Done About It (2007), has a new op-ed pointing out problems in the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and arguing that the focus should be on those stuck at the bottom, mainly in Africa.  The op-ed is: Paul Collier, "A Measure of Hope," NYTimes (Sep. 21, 2008). 

For more on the MDGs, the World Bank has a cool interactive atlas that goes through the goals one by one.  And of course the UN has a page with lots on them, as does the UNDP.  The UNDP's Millennium Development Goals Report (2008) is here
