Editorial Reviews

Review

“Moyo's diagnosis of the recent disasters in financial markets is succinct and sophisticated...I applaud her brave alarum against our economic and social complacency: her core concerns are sufficiently close to painful truths to warrant our attention.” ―Paul Collier, The Observer

“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
