Others are not so certain that development pursued by well-meaning experts working from the top down can ever make a dent in world poverty. Long-time critic of international aid WILLIAM EASTERLY, for instance, argues that: “We don’t know what actions achieve development, our advice and aid don’t make those actions happen even if we knew what they were, and we are not even sure who ‘we’ are that is supposed to achieve development.”
Can Bill Gates’ “creative capitalism” make significant inroads against world poverty? That question was addressed by Easterly along with Urban Institute Senior Fellow EUGENE STEUERLE and ALLEN HAMMOND, vice president for innovation at the World Resources Institute. Bradley Center Director WILLIAM SCHAMBRA moderated the discussion.
