More Dead Aid


David Roodman isn’t happy with Dead Aid: “The book is sporadically footnoted, selective in its use of facts, sloppy, simplistic, illogical, and stunningly naive.”

    I’m reading her book right now…while the reviews are accurate, I find them so sexist. Everyone (except Easterly) gives her shit for a lack of objectivity and selectivity that is true of any book and is never mentioned in reviews of books written by men…hope I’ll be able to attend her talk at NYU tonite, I’m on wait list…you going?

    and Roodman has no credibility anyway, what does he know about development except the blah blah he hears in DC and reads in papers using xtabond2 to show that aid works?
