Abstract

Easterly has written a unique book about the international differences in the standard of living, which have never been larger in the history of mankind than today. What makes Easterly's book unique is the masterly mixture of four elements: a first-hand knowledge of developing countries, a rigorous application of analytical concepts, a deep compassion for the people behind the statistical numbers, and an irresistible sense of humor and irony.
