Dead Aid by Dambisa Moyo

I remember picking up this book, Dead Aid by Dambisa Moyo, in the Waterstones bookstore in Oxford, in the town centre: sometime in November 2008 I think. I was drawn to the book because my ideas and position on aid had began to crystallize and I found it strange that someone else had written a book about it already - as if I have a monopoly on ideas.

I read some parts of the book and planned to buy it sometime and today I came across this interview on while eating my diner. Excellent interview, great ideas - she speaks with authority and eloquence on a sensitive issue.

Who is going to be our benevolent dictator to take us where our angel investors will not lead us?
