Bloomberg: "Ethiopia’s Meles Heads for Vote Win as West Gives Aid"

UPDATE 5/25: I see my interview with Bloomberg is reprinted in these two San Francisco Chronicle stories.

I'm quoted in Jason McLure's Bloomberg article, "Ethiopia’s Meles Heads for Vote Win as West Gives Aid."

Here's the quote:
"What Ethiopia is doing is looking at the Chinese model and taking bits and pieces of it and adapting it to their own context," David Shinn, the U.S. ambassador to the country from 1996 to 1999, said in a May 11 phone interview from Washington. "I think they’re comfortable with the way China does things and the way China handles human rights issues."
