More About The White Man's Burden by William Easterly
 
 
 
Overview
From one of the worldas best-known development economistsaan excoriating attack on the tragic hubris of the Westas efforts to improve the lot of the so-called developing world

In his previous book, "The Elusive Quest for Growth," William Easterly criticized the utter ineffectiveness of Western organizations to mitigate global poverty, and he was promptly fired by his then-employer, the World Bank. "The White Manas Burden" is his widely anticipated counterpunchaa brilliant and blistering indictment of the Westas economic policies for the worldas poor. Sometimes angry, sometimes irreverent, but always clear-eyed and rigorous, Easterly argues that we in the West need to face our own history of ineptitude and draw the proper conclusions, especially at a time when the question of our ability to transplant Western institutions has become one of the most pressing issues we face.
