AGOA in Madagascar

USTR threatens to revoke its AGOA deal with Madagascar if its government doesn't fix its rule of law. The thing is AGOA benefits the private textile sector, not the government, so, as Estearly puts it, why punish private individuals instead of the government? Development assitance is a failure because of such ill-designed policies.

In the mean time, Madagascar's two presidents are having talks with Madagascar's only two ex-presidents to discuss the fate of the island. They've got the whole island, in their hands.
