Read from February 06 to 17, 2010

Gross generalizations are an economist's tried and true method for capturing behavior. While Easterly take the development debate a step further with some of his insights, he also bothers me endlessly by abstracting away from root causes having to do with culture, sociology or anything not steeped in incentives.
