My rant for the year!
I am an international development economist and have spent many months over the last 13 years in African countries trying to redesign the recovery of national economies as well as in SA on behalf of the European Union, World Bank and United Nations.
Since Dec 2007 I have not been able to receive one frecken contract and am now starting to believe that there is a conspiracy against me personally or against Sefricans due to the economic downturn...so project funds are directed at European consultants who know f all about Africa. I bid for a project in Eritrea for 160 days (@ Euro 550 per day plus Euro 103 per day expenses = total Euro 112 720 for 8 month's work) and my CV was not even considered!  Angry
Check the President's office in Eritrea (I've been there 10 times! WTF!!) comment below:

I'm so pissed off and totally bankrupt at the moment as I have not been able to generate one cent in almost three years! My wife is at wits end as well.

Maybe, but the process is quite complicated. At the end of the day, the bureaucrats in Brussels take a decision and it is remarkable how we have been sidelined (some of my colleagues reflect the same thing)
