reviewed The White Man's Burden : Why the West's Efforts to Aid the Rest Have Done So Much Ill and So Little Good on
"The White Man's Burden is about what William Easterly calls the twin tragedies of global poverty. The first is that so many are seemingly fated to live horribly stunted miserable lives and die such early deaths. The second is that after fifty years and more than $2.3 trillion in aid from the West addressing the first tragedy, there is so shocklingly little to show from it. We'll never solve the first tragedy, William Easterly argues, unless we figure out the second"
