William Easterly, acclaimed author and former economist at the World Bank, addresses the problems of extreme poverty and the West's failed attempts to help the poor. While recognising the energy and compassion behind the campaign to make poverty history he argues that grand plans and good intentions are a part of the problem not the solution.
