Incentives matter juni 26, 2007

Posted by Fredrik Gustafsson in _In English_.

Dani Rodrik, one of the most promising and interesting economists at the moment, has posted a highly readable entry on aid. The book that perhaps epitomizes the second view on the plight of poor countries is William Easterly’s The Elusive Quest for Growth, I book a highly recommend. Similar reasoning can also be found in The White Man’s Burden, by the same author.

I saw your comment on Dani’s blog and thought I would check out your blog.

I agree, Easterly’s ”White Man’s Burden” is an excellent read. I was curious why Dani didn’t mention it on his blog given that Easterly is probably the biggest name (in the economics world) that is questioning Sachs, Hollywood, and Co. Perhaps just an oversight.

I was also waiting for Dani to mention Easterly. Strange that he didn’t.
