ABSTRACT
The article provides information on the U.S. government's effort to help improve the impoverished countries in the few past decades like Africa. The new administration under President Barack Obama as well as the new Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, are accordingly coining a new phrase which goes, "smart power." However, the idea is believed to likely result to the threat of a coup at some point.
