The Prime Minister of Mauritius praises the Aid Trap

R. Glenn HubbardOn September 24 during the UN General Assembly in New York, Dr. Honorable Prime Minister Navinchandra Ramgoolam of the Republic of Mauritius met with Dean R. Glenn Hubbard of Columbia Business School

Here’s what PM Ramgoolam had to say about The Aid Trap: Hard Truths About Ending Poverty, which was co-authored by Glenn Hubbard.

A few years ago, we in Mauritius set out to make it easier for our own people and foreign companies to do business in our country. The result has been far more prosperity for our people. Other countries want to learn from our experience. I am pleased to see that there is now a book that can help. The Aid Trap makes a strong case and offers concrete steps for countries not to rely exclusively on the aid world and join the business world instead. I hope this book has a wide impact on the minds, hearts and activities of national leaders, multi-national and local businesses, aid agencies, and concerned citizens around the world.
