Damisa Moyo

Commonwealth Club lectures are broadcast on at least 3 local radio stations, as I found out this morning while I was driving home from SFO. I heard part of this talk:
Dambisa Moyo, International Economist; Author, How The West Was Lost and Dead Aid (mp3)

She recommended this book: This Time Is Different:
Eight Centuries of Financial Folly
by Carmen M. Reinhart & Kenneth S. Rogoff
Foreign Policy

Why does Ben Bernanke recommend the book?

Carmen Reinhart
Kenneth Rogoff

NYT interview with Dr. Moyo
Aid Ironies
New Statesman interview

Tavis Smiley

Dambisa Moyo: without change US will almost certainly become a socialist nation

A celebrity academic?
