Summary
We all want to help. Over the past fifty years $1 trillion of aid has flowed from Western governments to Africa, with rock stars and actors campaigning for more. But this has not helped Africa. It has ruined it. This book reveals why millions are actually poorer because of aid, unable to escape corruption and reduced, in the West's eyes, to a childlike state of beggary. This book shows us another way. Using hard evidence to illustrate her case, the author shows how, with access to capital and with the right policies, even the poorest nations can turn themselves around. First we must destroy the myth that aid works and make charity history.
