Why Aid is Not Working and How There Is Another Way for Africa

LSE Africa Initiative public lecture


Over the past 50 years $1 trillion of aid has flowed from Western governments to Africa. Dambisa Moyo reveals why millions are actually poorer because of aid, unable to escape corruption and reduced, in the West’s eyes, to a childlike state of beggary. In this lecture she discusses an alternative approach.

Dambisa Moyo worked at Goldman Sachs for eight years, having previously worked for the World Bank as a consultant. Her latest book is Why Aid is Not Working and How There is Another Way for Africa.
