As we start heading off to the AEA conference in Minnesota next week, it’s timely to share the original theory of change that seems to have been part of Australia’s (successful) bid for a temporary seat on the UN Security Council:
The Australians wooed the 193 UN delegates with gifts including chocolate-coated hazelnut pralines shaped as kangaroos and koalas, while our rival for a security council seat, Finland, opted for a healthier gift of dried fruit – blueberries, in fact.
And the vote? The Aussies blew Finland away in the first round, with the northern Europeans then put out of the running altogether by minnow Luxembourg.
Made by chocolatier and retailer Koko Black, the seductive sweets are being hailed as a vital enticement in the crucial vote-gathering.
