Everyone is an angel

Finally I've got the courage to look at the World Bank Development Report 2008 "Agriculture for development". I have to say I am largely fed up with all the talk on poverty reduction promoted by the rich & powerful. Everyone pretends to be an angel coming to rescue the poor.
My gut reaction to this holy discourse full of compassion for the poor promoting some more wealth accumulation strategies is to think: "if only the rich & powerful would disappear - everything would be fine".
