William Easterly talked about his book, The Tyranny of Experts: Economists, Dictators, and the Forgotten Rights of the Poor, in which he argues that the United Nations and other organizations have failed to reduce global poverty since World War II.

He spoke at the RAND Corporation in Santa Monica, California. close
