The Plundered Planet

Why We Must--and How We Can--Manage Nature for Global Prosperity

Paul Collier

  • A groundbreaking analysis of the ways in which natural resource exploitation affects us all
  • Offers concrete suggestions for how to fix the problems--including global warming, food shortages, and violent conflict--that result from improper exploitation of natural resources
  • Written in the same objective, pithy, and original manner as the award-winning The Bottom Billion: In The Plundered Planet, Collier draws on his expertise in Development Economics, just as he did in The Bottom Billion
