Over the last century, global poverty has largely been viewed as a technical problem that merely requires the right ?expertOCO solutions. Yet all too often, experts recommend solutions that fix immediate problems without addressing the systemic political factors that created them in the first place. Further, they produce an accidental collusion with ?benevolent autocrats, OCO leaving dictators with yet more power to violate the rights of the poor. In qThe Tyranny of Experts, q economist William Easterly, bestselling author of qThe White ManOCOs Burden, q traces the history of the fight against global poverty, showing not only how these tactics have trampled the individual freedom of the worldOCOs poor, but how in doing so have suppressed a vital debate about an alternative approach to solving poverty: freedom. Presenting a wealth of cutting-edge economic research, Easterly argues that only a new model of development?one predicated on respect for the individual rights of people in developing countries, that understands that unchecked state power is the problem and not the solution ?will be capable of ending global poverty once and for all.Available at: http://www.hrw.org/sites/default/files/reports/ ethiopia1010webwcover.pdf, accessed August 25, 2013. 6. ...
