Dead Aid : Why Aid is Not Working and How There is a Better Way for Africa

Dead Aid: Why Aid is Not Working and How There is a Better Way for Africa

By Dambisa Moyo
$16.95




The provocative New York Times and Globe and Mail bestseller offers a controversial road map to address the desperate poverty in Africa.

The subject of a media blitz, Dead Aid continues to generate heated debate in the aid community. Bono's organization, one, organized a campaign against the author, Dambisa Moyo, who was chosen by Time magazine as one of the 100 most influential people of 2009. In the past 50 years, more than $1 trillion in aid has gone to Africa. In this "incendiary new book" (Daily Mail), Moyo offers a bold new road map for financing development of the world's poorest countries that guarantees economic growth and a significant decline in poverty-without reliance on foreign aid. Dead Aid is an unsettling yet optimistic work, a powerful challenge to the assumptions and arguments that support a profoundly misguided postwar development policy in Africa.
