4.6 out of 5 stars with 7 reviews
In his previous book, The Elusive Quest for Growth, William Easterly criticized the utter ineffectiveness of Western organizations to mitigate global poverty, and he was promptly fired by his then-employer, the World Bank.

Why Nations Fail: The Origins of Power, Prosperity, and Poverty
4.1 out of 5 stars with 7 reviews

Is it culture, the weather, geography? Perhaps ignorance of what the right policies are?
Simply, no. None of these factors is either definitive or destiny. Otherwise, how to explain why Botswana has become one of the fastest growing countries in the world, while
