What a day! I have spent some years, in the distant past, in some of those "developing" countries; my suspicion came to be that much, most likely most, of the money that is loaned to those governments eventually ends up in private accounts overseas, in bank accounts in Europe and the US. A friend who is in a position to know has confirmed this. Hence, much of our tax money goes into the pockets of corrupt third-world politicians and then into our banks where some of us own shares. A strange circle?
