The Great African Scandal

Academic Robert Beckford visits Ghana to investigate the hidden costs of rice, chocolate and gold and why, 50 years after independence, a country so rich in natural resources is one of the poorest in the world. He discovers child labourers farming cocoa instead of attending school and asks if the activities of multinationals, the World Bank and International Monetary Fund have actually made the country's problems worse.
The Great African Scandal
As part of the Caribbean diaspora in Britain, my theological work cannot be removed from the concrete world in which I live. Faith without engagement with the socio-political world is "faith without works."
