"How the West Was Lost: Fifty Years of Economic Folly and the Stark Choices Ahead"
Dambisa Moyo is an international economist who writes on the macroeconomy and global affairs. She is the author of critically acclaimed New York Times Bestseller Dead Aid: Why Aid is Not Working and How there is a Better Way for Africa, which details the inefficacy of development aid for poor countries.
Her forthcoming book entitled How the West Was Lost: Fifty Years of Economic Folly and the Stark Choices Ahead explores the failure of policy-making in the world’s leading industrialized economies. She examines how politically-motivated policy decisions around Capital, Labor and Technology – key ingredients for growth- have placed economies on a precarious path of economic decline.
