On tribe and economics

Simuyu Barasa has a compelling op-ed in NYT about the experience of coming from mixed-tribe heritage in Kenya today, and about the manifestation of tribalism more broadly.

In the Christian Science Monitor, Kodi Barth makes the argument that economic disparity is fueling the conflict in Kenya. Barth argues that the current violence is represents a “necessary catharsis” and a revolt against “chauvinistic power, skewed economics, weak institutions, and failed politics.”
