"What we have here is a failure to communicate" 

Excessive charity?
Aid agencies have pledged too many boats to victims of last year�s tsunami disaster in the Indonesian province of Aceh, threatening over-fishing in its waters, the Red Cross warned on Tuesday� The province now [faces] a situation where, if all the pledges were kept, it would have more boats than it had before the tsunami.

Please note that overfishing wouldn't be a problem if the waters were privatized. Didn't I just link to a private sector development blog?
