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.

A common sense, deeply detailed explanation of worldwide economic development. Common assumptions, many of them widely held, are exposed as untrue.
