Product description

Review

In this path-breaking book, Paul Collier develops one of the most fascinating subjects he touched on in The Bottom Billion-- the resource curse. It will be of great interest to all those who are concerned about the future of our civilization (George Soros )

Paul Collier has written with great insight about the prospects of the bottom billion. In The Plundered Planet, he addresses himself to the complex opportunities, challenges and risks in managing the planet's natural resources. The bottom billion have a huge stake and an important role in the outcomes. Collier helps us see these issues through their eyes (Michael Spence, Winner Of The Nobel Prize In Economics )

Read this book (Sir Nicholas Stern, Author Of The Stern Review On The Economics Of Climate Change )

Original, important and always thought-provoking. I learned a lot (Tim Harford, Author Of The Undercover Economist And The Logic Of Life )

Collier's arguments are compassionate and convincing, and his straightforward explanations of economic principles are leavened with humor and impressively accessible (Publishers Weekly )

Paul Collier must be read if one is to begin to understand the complexity of the most vital contemporary arguments. In this book Collier takes up where he left off with hugely important Bottom Billion and proposes carefully thought through solutions to the big one - how are we going to make it? (Bob Geldof )

About the Author

Paul Collier is Professor of Economics and Director of the Center for the Study of African Economies at Oxford University and a former director of Development Research at the World Bank. In addition to the award-winning The Bottom Billion, he is the author of Wars, Guns, and Votes: Democracy in Dangerous Places.
