Can Nuclear Energy Work for the Developing World?

That's a question that MIT Technology Review is asking today:

New reactor technologies offer poorer nations cheap, safe, efficient power. Sanctions designed to prevent the proliferation of weapons impede their use. What would a better policy look like?
It's an interesting quesiton, and one that deserves our attention, especially given the interest of many developing nations.

I think the thing to keep in mind is that the "developing world" is not monolithic. Shenzen and Mogadishu are both cities in "developing countries" but their need and suitability for nuclear power are chalk and cheese.
