William Easterly (Development Economist) has started a blog

via Greg Mankiw, "Bill Easterly, one of my favorite development economists, has started a blog": Aid Watch: Just asking that Aid Benefits the Poor.

A former economist for the World Bank, Easterly is the author of two books I would highly recommend: The White Man's Burden: Why the West's Efforts to Aid the Rest Have Done So Much Ill and So Little Good and The Elusive Quest for Growth: Economists' Adventures and Misadventures in the Tropics - must reads for anyone who is interested in poverty and economic development.
