The White Man's Burden: Why the West's Efforts to Aid the Rest Have Done So Much Ill and So Little Good

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: William Easterly

Narrated By: Mike Chamberlain

Publisher: Tantor Media

Date: July 2017

Duration: 14 hours 36 minutes

Summary:

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. The White Man's Burden is his widely anticipated counterpunch-a brilliant and blistering indictment of the West's economic policies for the world's poor. Sometimes angry, sometimes irreverent, but always clear-eyed and rigorous, Easterly argues that we in the West need to face our own history of ineptitude and draw the proper conclusions, especially at a time when the question of our ability to transplant Western institutions has become one of the most pressing issues we face.
