This is from the Marginal Counterrevolution, my new attempt to subvert and replace the original Marginal Revolution. I did not bother announcing this blog here before because of my reluctance to engage the readers here in petty personal disputes. Whether a post appears on the Counterrevolution or on this blog depends on my personal sense of propriety.

Note that some of the catch-up to Burundi began in the early stages of the Rwandan Civil War, while there was little to none before.
