Dambisa Moyo: Dead Aid
Summary: Shaky econometrics/statistics. Shitload of aid been given to Africa, hardly any development growth. So aid is bad, what's need is more open capital markets, more debt by African countries. The amount of Internet porn has been increasing, while the planet is warming. Should stop delete internet porn to cool the planet
Should read it: laissez faire people, ayn rand fanboys (and the occasional fangirl)
People that should avoid it: hippie liberal feminists who think having minorties in high positions will lead to brilliant new insights
Levitt and Dubner: Superfreakonomics
Summary: Follow up to Freakonomics. Hence the original title. Lack of originality also goes for the content. Stuff everyone already knows, like most top athletes are born early in a year. Age cohorts 101 ahoy. Shaky econometrics is also here, it's better to drive drunk than to walk drunk. And since we need some publicity we'll pseudo deny global warming and offer some dumb solution.
People that should read it: people who mistake Michael Crichton for a non fiction writer, people who want to witness the collapse of experimental economics from the University of Chicago.
People that should avoid it: People who drink alcohol.
