Re: “Potatoes, not patchouli, is the best way to help Rwanda

Two of Rylan Higgin's misunderstandings involve the positive net social benefits of most businesses and the malleable role of land in farm production. For a good African perspective on the former see Ann Bernstein's "The Case for Business in Developing Economies." If businesses had to take the anthropological approach he is suggesting then poor countries would likely remain poor for a very long time.
Regarding land, Rwanda has the same area of arable land as the Netherlands but only two thirds as many people. The Netherlands are the World's second largest exporter of food and agricultural products yet on a per capita basis the Dutch only have 60% as much agricultural land as Rwanda.
