The White Man's Burden: Why the West's Efforts to Aid the Rest Have Done So Much Ill and So Little Good

Why the West's Efforts to Aid the Rest Have Done So Much Ill and So Little Good

From one of the world’s best-known development economists—an 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 counterpunch—a 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.

The great money destroyers

Hilarious, well-documented, report by a former senior-research economist of the World Bank on the total spendings of 2,5 trillion(!) US dollars on developing care by the Western world. This book should be read by anybody, who is considering donating any money to some other mirage of so called ‘Gutmenschen’ (german for good folks) or maybe even more accurate ‘Bessermenschen’ (better folks).
