The Bottom Billion: Why the Poorest Countries are Failing and What Can Be Done About It by Paul Collier
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
It was a hard read for me, but I finished it. It counters a lot of what I have read about what keeps poor countries poor. It is very well documented and is quite convincing. The solutions are sometimes difficult to understand and are always difficult to implement, making the book discouraging to me and to others who are looking for easier answers. I recommend it for any serious student of the elimination of poverty.
