William Easterly Says the Aid Debate is Over

book cover

William Easterly reviews The Idealist: Jeffrey Sachs and the Quest to End Poverty, by Nina Munk. Jeffrey Sachs' formula for ending poverty was appealingly simple, but as Munk chronicles, it didn't play out nearly the way he expected. Easterly believes that the book provides much insight into the future of the aid and development debate.
