Not a blog about the science or practice of travel through books, but perhaps rather about science, practice and travel through books.

The privatisation-song

In need for great entertainment? Try the World Bank’s privatisation-song, made for promoting privatisation in Tanzania in 2001. Here’s my favourite part of the lyrics:

“Young plants need rain, businesses need investment. Our old industries are like dry crops and privatisation brings the rain. When the harvest comes, there is plenty for everyone.

Privatisation makes a team. The people are on the team, working in new jobs and buying shares in their own future. Investors are on the team, risking everything they own and betting that we can succeed. Government is on the team, the referee who keeps everything fair, the old man we can trust. ”

The full lyrics can be found here and a mp3-file here. There’s also a rap song We Need Money.
