Power to the people.

Here are some slides from a presentation I gave at a conference a hosted by Bill Easterly at NYU last week. The topic was Accountability in Development Aid.  I spoke about how decentralized systems like GlobalGiving enable much more open access to the aid process - and how they offer the potential for greater accountability to the people that aid is supposed to help in the first place. We are still in the early stages, but the possibilities are great.
