White Man's Burden by Principal Economist William Easterly
Book DescriptionFrom one of the world's best-known development economistsan excoriating attack on the tragic hubris of the West's 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 Man's Burden is his widely anticipated counterpuncha brilliant and blistering indictment of the West's economic policies for the world's 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.
