How the West Was Lost

Dambisa Moyo

Publisher: Penguin Books Ltd

Format: Paperback

From the author of “Dead Aid”, Dambisa Moyo's “How the West was Lost” explores how the 'first world' has its wasted inheritance with flawed economic policy - and what can be done to reverse the decline. We think we know what's coming. But is it already too late? “How the West Was Lost” is a wake-up call for all of us. Dambisa Moyo argues that during the last fifty years the most advanced countries on earth have squandered their advantage through fatally flawed policies: obsessing over property, ravenously consuming and building up debt instead of investing. Here Moyo outlines solutions that could help stem the tide. By rethinking many of the things we take for granted, she shows, it may yet be possible for the West to get back into the race. “An outspoken iconoclast...Moyo shows well how fundamental economic liberalisation espoused by what she calls the profligate, greedy, self-interested West has come back to bite it”. (“Guardian”). “Succinct and sophisticated...I applaud her brave alarum against our economic and social complacency”. (“Observer”). “A well-reasoned look at how the world's most-advanced nations are squandering their economic lead ...a prescription for stopping the rot”.(“Bloomberg”). “Clear and brazen...This argument has rarely have been made more concisely”. (“The Times”). “An economist who makes waves”. (“Sunday Telegraph”). Dambisa Moyo worked at Goldman Sachs for eight years, having previously worked for the World Bank as a consultant. Moyo completed a PhD in Economics at Oxford University, and holds a Masters from Harvard University Kennedy School of Government. Her other books include “Winner Take All” and “How the West was Lost”. She was born and raised in Lusaka, Zambia.
