New Film Details How Botswana Benefits From Diamonds

By nearly all accounts when it comes to the diamond industry, Botswana is a success story. Because of diamonds the landlocked, arid country of 2.3 million people moved from being one of the poorest countries in Africa to one of the most successful medium-sized economies with more than 80% of diamond profits staying within the country. Much of this income benefits citizens through free education, free healthcare, an expansion of local jobs in the diamond industry, and plan for a more diversified economic future. [Forbes]
