Global Poverty Paradox

Nicholas N. Eberstadt has an informative essay in Commentary, “The Global Poverty Paradox.” Examining the data, Eberstadt argues that dozens of developing nations have actually seen their economies decline over the past few generations despite rapid growth worldwide. It is a somewhat dispiriting reality check for those who believe that technological and economic progress in the first world necessarily leads to economic progress in the third world.
