Since the end of World War II, economists have tried to figure out how poor countries in the tropics could attain higher standards of living. The problem is not the failure of economics, Easterly argues, but the failure to apply economic principles to practical policy work.

I ordered this book for my Economic Development class and will keep it even when I'm done with studying. The book is written in simple language, contains a lot of interesting examples, and explains the main economic growth theories and problems in such a way, that you read it as an overwhelming novel and remember the concepts easily. It is also very human - I mean it sees real people beyond the facts and figures. Thank you, Mr. Easterly, for a wonderful work! I'm a native Russian speaker with a lot of translation experience, so if you ever want to have your book translated into Russian, let me know :)
