Reviews

"Moyo's diagnosis of the recent disasters in financial markets is succinct and sophisticated...I applaud her brave alarm against our economic and social complacency: her core concerns are sufficiently close to painful truths to warrant our attention."--Paul Collier, "The Observer" "We [in the West] have alienated trading partners and are colluding in the decline of our own prosperity, says Moyo, who sets out strategies for weighting the political seesaw back to our advantage." --Iain Finlayson, "The Times" "This argument...can rarely have been made more concisely...Moyo is a very serious lady indeed."--Dominic Lawson, "The Times" "The sad saga of the recession gives legs to Dambisa Moyo's provocatively-entitled book, for it goes to the heart of the great economic issue of our times: how swiftly will power shift over this century?"-- Hamish McRae, "The Independent"
