Big Think interview with R. Glenn Hubbard

With many experts seeing the question of aid as one of the key issues of the next decade, R. Glenn Hubbard’s interview with Big Think about his new book The Aid Trap: Hard Truths About Ending Poverty is particularly timely.

In the interview Hubbard talks about the need for a new Marshall Plan for Africa and the ways in which it can help stimulate local businesses, prevent corruption, and build upon George W. Bush’s initiative, the Millennium Challenge Account.

Hubbard also talks about the ambiguous role of China in Africa and later in the interview fields questions on a variety of issues ranging from whether business schools contributed to the economic meltdown to whether governments should encourage home ownership.
