Practice What You Preach There Mr. Lecturer…
At a press conference today in Pretoria, South Africa, President Obama lectured about job creation — and how to look out for your own national interests:
“Now, I do think that it’s important for Africans to make sure that these interactions are good for Africa. Because — let me just take the example of natural resources. I think there has been a long history of extracting resources from Africa. You take raw materials, you send them to some place else, where they get used, processed, sometimes sold back to Africa. The profits stay there, the jobs stay there, and not much stays in Africa. There’s a long history of that,” Obama said.
