Dead Aid - Why aid is not working and how there is a better way for Africa - by Dambisa Moyo [Reading report] by Athina Limnatitis

2014-02-28

The author is part of the "Alternative Management" third year specialization program in HEC Paris

During the last fifty years, the total amount of development aid transferred from rich countries to Africa has reached more than a thousand billion dollars; however, this has not helped reducing poverty on the continent. On the contrary, the assistance encouraged corruption and growth rates have remained low. In her book, Dambisa Moyo exposes the reasons of this significant failure and gives solutions in order to set up a funding program for a development without development aid
