Is Africa Stuck in a Poverty Trap?

During the past six months or so I have been searching the question about the poor and needy in the Muslim world, especially in Africa. One book that really grabbed me was:

The White Man’s Burden: Why the West’s Efforts to Aid the Rest Have Done So Much Ill and So Little Good, by William Easterly.

In this book Easterly, a Professor of Economics at New York University, lays out a simple strategy of how to really help Africa. In a word it is the “Piece-Meal Approach”. His advice is to find local solutions for local questions, one-at-a-time, that will heal Africa’s depleted economy and save the lives of children.

I urge you to give a listen to his message at:
