Good. There is no doubt: we want to help. The well-documented horrors of extreme poverty around the world have create d a moral imperative that people have responded to in their millions. Yet the poverty persists. At a time of unprecedented global prosperity, chi ldren are starving to death. Are we not being generous enough? Or is the pr oblem somehow insoluble, an inevitable outcome of historical circumstance? In this provocative and compelling book, Dambisa Moyo argues that the most important challenge we face today is to destroy the myth that Aid actually works. In the modern globalized economy, simply handing out more money, how ever well intentioned, will not help the poorest nations achieve sustainabl e long-term growth. Dead Aid analyses the history of economic development o ver the last fifty years and shows how Aid crowds out financial and social capital and feeds corruption; the countries that have 'caught up' did so de spite rather than because of Aid. There is, however, an alternative. Extreme poverty is not inevitable. Dambi sa Moyo shows how, with improved access to capital and markets and with the right policies, even the poorest nations can prosper. If we really do want to help, we have to do more than just appease our consciences, hoping for the best, expecting the worst. We need first to understand the problem.
