Bono the power-broker
Apparently Bono has been elevated to a cabinet-level position – what else can you make of this story?
The argument’s most interesting bit:
“I think if people understood they could give six copies of Dr. Seuss and every child could have one…that translates better than saying give us more money,” O’Neill said.
“If you do something that helps people with real tangible things (it helps more than) talking about some cosmic stuff about billions of dollars.”
Bono, a long-term activist for debt relief and for more generous aid to Africa, responded by saying that more money was needed from rich Western nations.
