From the eminent economist who was loudly fired from the World Bank for daring to state publicly that after trillions of dollars poured into the rest of the world by the West''s gigantic aid bureaucracies over the last half-century, there''s been, to put it mildly, precious little to show for it, comes an excoriating attack on the reckless arrogance and folly of our faith that we know how to reengineer other societies.

About the Book

A professor of economics pens an informed and excoriating attack on the tragic waste, futility, and hubris of the West's efforts to date to improve the lot of the so-called developing world, and provides constructive suggestions on how to move forward.
