This does not count. The Huffington report is a liberal report that is left leaning, and it is their duty to say something like that, in order to please their left friend to the North. The fact is there are several African countries that are poorer than Ethiopia, I mean dirt poor. Countries like Djibouti, DRC (Congo), Gabon, Equatorial Guinea, Uganda, Angola, Mozambique, and Gambia,... etc The last time we heard Ethiopia is on major construction boom, and almost everyone has a job, and our economy has been growing 8.5% Avg. for the past seven of the last ten years, and 11.5 Avg. for the past three years.
So, I do not believe the report, I am not saying Woyanne's flawed economic report is not inaccurate, but its not as bad as the Huffington report paints it. In fact, I would argue that Woyanne has better command of Ethiopian economy than Shabia over Eritrean economy. If you say three years down the road, I would agree that Eritrea has the chance to fix many of the structural problem and currency shortages, but at the moment Ethiopia has a better economic stand than Eritrea does. Woyanne has printed currency en-mass to pay government workers, while EFFORT takes all the contracts in Ethiopian major projects financed by IMF and WB, but as far as the current condition Woyanne has upper hand over Eritrea's economic successes.
