The Phnom Penh Post is my newspaper of choice when I visit Cambodia, where my company has clients.
I was thus disappointed by your decision to title your October 8 article "MFIs fear cash drought". The words "fear" and "drought" were not at all reflective of the content of the article - which I found balanced. The practitioners interviewed expect a 20 percent to 25 percent decrease in their growth and/or funding for 2009; hardly a "drought". Given that growth was forecasted at 60 percent, this still implies a robust 50 percent growth.
Unfortunately, I think this is as an example of how media hype can unnecessarily stir people's fears, in an already delicate financial environment, thus exacerbating the problem.
