Tutu on the financial meltdown

Not strictly to do with the media, but since the global financial meltdown has dominated world news, yet so little attention has been paid to how this crisis will affect developing countries, I thought it relevant to post this link to an interview that Inter Press Service did with South African Nobel laureate Desmond Tutu on the financial crisis. Tutu is always inspiring, not only for his integrity and wisdom, but also his optimism about the future of South Africa.  On a day when I had to read another story of a white farmer being charged of violence against his workers (in this case leading to the death of a 13-year old girl), Tutu’s quote in the last paragraph seems almost defiantly optimistic: “You see headlines ‘vicious race riots’ and you think that is South Africa. And you read on, you find it is Manchester, England”
