From one of the worlda€™s best-known development economistsa€”an excoriating attack on the tragic hubris of the Westa€™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 Mana€™s Burden is his widely anticipated counterpuncha€”a brilliant and blistering indictment of the Westa€™s economic policies for the worlda€™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.Yet the market has no trouble meeting the multiple objectives of providing consumers with dentistry, auto repair, and talk shows. This is ... Rich democracies also feature bureaucracies that are more specialized than those in foreign aid.
