Save the Apes, Save the Africans?

Could saving the apes really save the whole African society? This Somerset woman believes that she has the answer. This is the idea order. Saving apes, you need an organization. An organization needs people to work for it. People working will HELP END POVERTY :D

"Debt is an efficient tool. It ensures access to other peoples’ raw materials and infrastructure on the cheapest possible terms. Dozens of countries must compete for shrinking export markets and can export only a limited range of products because of Northern protectionism and their lack of cash to invest in diversification. Market saturation ensues, reducing exporters’ income to a bare minimum while the North enjoys huge savings. The IMF cannot seem to understand that investing in a healthy, well-fed, literate population is the most intelligent economic choice a country can make."

Susan George, A Fate Worse Than Debt, (New York: Grove Weidenfeld, 1990), pp. 143, 187, 235

The IMF and World Bank have demanded that poor nations lower the standard of living of their people. Is that fair!? If you think that it is, then you are among the people that criticize Susan Georges' fight to end poverty. And that is the idea that so kindly started poverty.
