I have to apologize for taking so long to put together the winners list for the Aid Thoughts Extreme Third World Farmer Challenge. Finally, here we go:
The entry with the best overall score is *drumroll*…
Minae Seog from Dartmouth College! With a score of 4,485, Minae beat out the competition by a whopping 2,645 points. As soon as we can arrange it, Minae will win a free copy of our special Aid Thoughts edition of Dead Aid, scrawled with critical notes and expletives by Ranil and myself (she’ll need to e-mail me her address first). Congrats Minae!
The entry with the highest Human Development Index is….
Bet Caeyers from Oxford University with an HDI of 0.75. As no one reported very reliable life expectancy figures, the HDI measure is limited to just the income and education dimensions. Since the winner of this category isn’t a blogger, Bet will get to nominate which blog will be free of Aid Thoughts snark.
When I have a little more free time on my hands, I ‘ll put up a link with all the entries, and a little more detail on how the scores were put together. Until then, congratulations to the winners, and thanks for playing.
