Abiy Ahmed, prime minister of Ethiopia who was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2019, said last week that in 2019, 64 countries, nearly half of them in sub-Saharan Africa, spent more on servicing external debt than on health. Ethiopia alone, he said, spends twice as much on paying off external debt as on health. “We spend 47 percent of our merchandise exp...

Will Coronavirus Be the Death or Salvation of Big Plastic?
It was supposed to be a blockbuster moment for the U.S. plastic industry. With an abundance of cheap natural gas at hand, thanks to the country’s fracking boom, U.S. energy giants were pouring billions of dollars into building new plants to turn that gas into plastic.

But the rosy projections may not be panning out. With the oil industry in freefall, and a pandemic grippin...
