Sunday, January 3 at 10 p.m. – America Abroad "Arrested Development: Shortchanging Foreign Aid"
(Rochester, NY) – Smart power, a.k.a. the "Three Ds," has been a mantra of the Obama administration. But of defense, diplomacy and development, the third "d" is getting an "F." Underfunded and understaffed, the U.S. Agency for International Development is a shadow of its former self. "Arrested Development: Shortchanging Foreign Aid," airing Sunday, January 3 at 10 p.m. on AM 1370/FM-HD91.5-2, visits Afghanistan, where the military has taken the lead on development work, and Ethiopia, where decades of American assistance has borne little fruit. The scientific questions over climate change settle. The fight over the globe's economic transformation is only just beginning.
