afra raymond

Afra Raymond talks the TED conference audience about the massive oil money corruption taking place in his native country Trinidad and Tobago.

His talk focused on the corruption in the oil sector in his country. According to the TED site…

Trinidad and Tobago amassed great wealth in the 1970s thanks to oil. But in 1982, a shocking fact was revealed — that 2 out of every 3 dollars earmarked for development had been wasted or stolen. This has haunted Afra Raymond for 30 years. Shining a flashlight on a continued history of government corruption, Raymond gives us a reframing of financial crime. (Filmed at TEDxPortofSpain.)
