Dambisa Moyo | How the West Was Lost: Fifty Years of Economic Folly—and the Stark Choices Ahead

Tue, February 15, 2011 7:30 P.M.
Parkway Central Library

Cost: FREE

Global economist Dambisa Moyo is the author of the controversial and critically acclaimed New York Times bestseller Dead Aid: Why Aid is Not Working and How There is a Better Way for Africa, which details the inefficacy of development aid for poor countries. Kofi Annan, former United Nations Secretary-General, acknowledged that Moyo “makes a compelling case for a new approach in Africa.” And, Time named her one of the “100 Most Influential People in the World.” In her new book, Moyo examines how politically motivated policy decisions about capital, labor, and technology—key ingredients for growth—have unbalanced the already-precarious global economy.
