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

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

User Review  - Ben Pushka - Goodreads

This is Easterly's follow up book to "The Elusive Quest for Growth: Economists' Adventures and Misadventures in the Tropics" If you read the 1'st book, do not bother reading this one. To me if felt ... Read full review
