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

User Review  - Carolyn Cotterman - Goodreads

So disappointing. Maybe someone who is completely unfamiliar with the field of development would find this book educational? I just thought that everything I read was either completely obvious and over-explained or unsubstantiated. I couldn't make it to the end. Read full review

User Review  - John Goodell - Goodreads

Didn't actually finish this book. Thought the message was clear and strong but Easterly does a poor job of backing it up; he is unrelenting in his use of data and World Bank references. Too anecdotal. What a shame Read full review

The economic perspective on aid critique is normally not my favorite (ie most effective nor most fun to read), but this is a rare exception. Read full review

User Review  - Malin Friess - Goodreads

My library renewal ran out and I was unable to finish this 380 page book (but even if I had the time I do not think I would have finished Easterly's book). Maybe I'll give this book a try again in the future. Read full review

User Review  - Louis Woofenden - Goodreads

Easterly provides a compelling argument against large aid programs, and for more home-grown solutions built by local innovators. Read full review

User Review  - Dash Williams - Goodreads

The thesis was interesting and solidly defended. From the outside looking in it seems obvious that an aid industry that isn't accountable to the poor it serves and that has mostly vague goals is going to be destined to be largely ineffectual. Read full review
