Good news: the Center for Global Development has started a new podcast series, the Global Prosperity Wonkcast.
In this first episode, host Lawrence Macdonald talks to Todd Moss about his new paper, Saving Ghana from Its Oil: The Case for Direct Cash Distribution. Todd proposes ways for the citizens to have more oversight of Ghana’s oil revenue, and to contain oil-induced patronage, by distributing the benefits of oil directly to the citizens.
The podcast lasts about 20 minutes, and you cou listen directly on line or subscribe on iTunes.
As you would expect from CGD, this first episode sugests that the wonkcasts will be essential listening. CGD has a knack of addressing important developing issues in interesting and innovative ways, and basing its ideas on thorough research and evidence.
And if CGD’s wonkcast doesn’t satisfy your entire appetite for podcasts on development, there is always Development Drums.
