    That is always a terrible attitude. Just because someone may not be highly qualified, doesn't mean their opinion is any less valuable. Whether you accept it is of course a different matter, however, you haven't chosen not to accept it, you disregarded it entirely based on your prejudice in favour of academic qualifications.

    Globalisation and the market will help Africa as they will be able to trade their way out of poverty. Western protectionism; for one example CAP, damages their ability to trade their way out of poverty.
    I did not say your opinion is not valuable. I said "you are nothing" with regards to my previous post about your credentials - i.e. you have none. If you inferred me saying you have no credentials as your opinion being worthless then thats your problem. I simply chose not to accept your opinion. Also note that I did give an example of why at first globalisation is harmful to unproductive countries. You obviously chose to disregard that, so I guess that means we are even.
