How to discourage investment in Africa

If one wanted to deter Western businesses from investing in Africa, one would be sorely challenged to surpass this proposal from a Yale professor:

A Yale professor calls for using the fledgling U.N.-system court to prosecute multinational businesses and their executives (“Treat Greed in Africa as a War Crime”).
There is a rather entertaining response here. Regardless, given Yale's history of exploiting Africans, it must have taken great courage for Professor Clarke to take the stand she did.

I crack me up.

  1. In my limited experience as a lawyer, Yale is grossly overrated. Of every bona fide idiot law professor I ever had, all but one were Yalies. - DF
