Aid and Other Dirty Business: How Good Intentions Have Failed the World's Poor

by Giles Bolton - £9.99  Ebury Press (2008)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780091914356 | ISBN 10: 0091914353

Do you know why Africa is so poor? What really happens to your aid money?
Why trade rules fail African countries and yet cost you too? We've heard it all before: the corrupt leaders, heartless global corporations, the wicked World Bank. But the answers are much closer to home...and so are the solutions.
When Giles Bolton began working in the world of aid and development, he travelled to Africa convinced that he could solve problems, save villages and sing songs with the locals under a shimmering sunset. The reality proved rather less romantic, and far more shocking...
Aid and Other Dirty Business is a radical, brilliantly readable and totally original approach to an unending problem. It may change your life, but, more important, it will help you change the lives of others.
