5.0 out of 5 stars equality, the third world and economic delusion August 27, 2008
Format:Paperback
this is a gem, and absolute classic. Chapter 1, entitled "The Grail of Equality" is alone worth the cost of the book. Peter Bauer is an excellent writer and his exposure of the foreign aid mess is a salutary lesson on the incompetence of governments to end poverty.

Buy this book as soon as you can.

Great arguments. Well written. I got this book because Thomas Sowell, one of my favorite authors, recommended it in an article. I am very happy I bought it. Full of great arguments you won't hear anywhere else.

5.0 out of 5 stars Eye opening July 17, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A common sense, deeply detailed explanation of worldwide economic development. Common assumptions, many of them widely held, are exposed as untrue.

3.0 out of 5 stars Very Deep September 14, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Tough read for the layman, but very easy to understand Thomas Sowell's recommendation. All liberals should read this book; it will probably change some attitudes.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best books on economics I've ever read June 17, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I wish I had time to give a "real" review of this book. It is a must-read, especially if you are interested in ways to help the poor and less fortunate around the world. Excellent. Get it now.
