9780141042145: The Plundered Planet: How to Reconcile Prosperity With Nature

In The Plundered Planet: How to Reconcile Prosperity with Nature Paul Collier proposes a radical and often counter-intuitive rethink of international policy in order to combat global poverty and environmental devastation.

How can we help poorer countries become richer without harming the planet? Is there a way of reconciling prosperity with nature?

World-renowned economist Paul Collier offers smart, surprising and above all realistic answers to this dilemma. Steering a path between the desires of unchecked profiteering and the romantic views of environmentalists, he explores creative ways to deal with poverty, overpopulation and climate change - showing that the solutions needn't cost the earth.

'A practical handbook for ending world poverty. He wants us to read the evidence, not wear slogans on our T-shirts'
  Sunday Times

'Collier and his team have researched the detail ... If you want to help the world, stem your bleeding heart and tell your broker to switch your funds to Emerging Markets (Africa)'
  Sunday Telegraph

'An intriguing take on how western nations can stop poor countries rich in resources from being exploited'
  Observer

'Anyone looking for a primer on how best to exploit the riches of nature could do worse than reading this introduction to the problem'
  Economist

'Paul Collier must be read if one is to begin to understand the most vital contemporary arguments'
  Bob Geldof

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.

Review:

A path-breaking book (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 most vital contemporary arguments. (Bob Geldof)

Collier and his team have researched the detail ... If you want to help the world, stem your bleeding heart and tell your broker to switch your funds to Emerging Markets (Africa) ( Sunday Telegraph)
