Yes, that’s your humble Cable guy leading a fascinating discussion on global development at the Newseum last Friday, put on by Oxfam America and featuring a keynote speech by Kenya’s legendary anti-corruption champion, John Githongo.

He was joined on the panel by Oxfam America President Ray Offenheiser, Liberian Economic and Finance Minister Amara Konneh, and Esther Talla of the Cameroon Coalition Against Malaria.
