In this interview with EIA Senior Editor Zach Dorfman, Shefa Siegel discusses his essay “Ebola, Liberia, and the Cult of Bankable Projects,” which appears in the spring 2015 issue of the journal.

It’s not for lack of money that international organizations failed to prevent the disastrous spread of Ebola, says Siegel. It’s for lack of flexibility and an inability to develop a comprehensive picture of what’s going on and what the development needs are in any given country—take Liberia, which has a mere 50 doctors to serve its population of 4 million.
