When will Sierra Leoneans be able to benefit from their own natural resources, instead of being cursed by them?
Sierra Leone is a country that has been 'blessed' with excellent natural resources, and remains in political chaos with one of the lowest HDI scores. For a national economy, having abundant natural resources does not guarantee economic prosperity. This is baffling to many that don't see the political and geographic context that shapes various economic sectors. This is good a way to demonstrate that context.
