Dambisa Moyo (Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2009, 188pp)
The author, former employee of the World Bank and investment bank Goldman Sachs, argues that the $1 trillion-plus dollars of development aid that has moved from the global North to Africa have not improved the lives of Africans, rather these dollars have worsened conditions there. Instead, Moyo offers an alternate model to the current aid model that stands today--an aid-less model which she believes would guarantee economic growth in Africa.
