End of the Internship...

This week marks my final week here at Jubilee USA. I have learned a lot from this experience and will miss the people I work with very much. I have also learned how difficult it is to work for a non-for-profit. Money really dictates what you can and cannot do. You can't say certain things, as you do not want to alienate any of your supporters or donors. It is a thin line to walk, especially when you are advocating for things and want to get people fired up but not pissed at you for putting a picture of a car fire on an email.
I have also learned a lot about vulture funds and am disheartened and disgusted by the behavior that some hedge funds have taken against the poorest of nations. Over Thanksgiving week, 2 vulture funds were awarded a judgment summary of $20 million from Liberia. This is particularly disturbing because Liberia had previously participated in a debt buy back with the IMF and World Bank and were the model for how countries can change their economic future.
