This book includes a study in the development of poverty and it gives an insight in the contribution of history, economics and politics to a society. While suffering from excessive repetition, this book addresses the issues of wealth and poverty in relation to politics and economics. I enjoyed reading about China’s power as a developing monster economy, and the comparison they make about the fates of North- and South Korea, and how their well-being became so different. It is obvious that the writers believe that it is not aid, but the economical and political structure and institutions that lead to a nations prosperity. Another writer who is famous for criticising aid is Dambisa Moyo. She wrote an influential book called “Dead Aid”.
