Failing Economies Stand in the Way of the MDGs

According to an article by Ola Onikoyi Jr, if the drastic declines of African economies due to the financial crisis are left unattended, "the fight to half extreme hunger and poverty by 2015 may well be like waiting for a raindrop in the drought." Developed countries are focused on bailing out their own economies first, yet they need to recognize the importance of helping out the poorer countries as well. Successfully achieving the Millennium Development Goals will be impossible without first addressing the economic issues.
