Farewell to Tyranny (Review of William Easterly, The Tyranny of Experts: Economists, Dictators, and the Forgotten Rights of the Poor)
In his new book prominent development economist argues for asking poor in developing countries for their needs and seeing local institutions not as a hurdle for development, but as an indigenous response to local conditions. Respecting rights of the poor might lift them out of poverty faster than any state interventions. While return from current developmental consensus will diminish, Easterly’s recipes will gain popularity. ‘The Tyranny of Experts’ will be widely read both by students and practitioners of development economics
