According to Wiki, the per capita GDP for Sudan was less than $1,000 in 1999. Inflation was at 20% and the GDP was growing at only 3%. Ten years from now, I won't care too much whether inflation is a bit lower or the GDP is growing a bit faster.
I will care if infant mortality has fallen. From 1960 to 2002 infant mortality in Sudan fell from 21% to 9%. That's actually a great improvement compared to countries like Nigeria, Niger, and Sierra Leone. Let's keep the children alive, first, then teach them to read, then get them good jobs.
