This review of Linda Polman's The Crisis Caravan: What’s Wrong With Humanitarian Aid? was published in the November/December Washington Monthly. It's an under-researched polemic by a brave author on an interesting subject.
We Don't Need No Universal Education? was published online by the Harvard International Review. The piece notes that there are multiple links in the chain between building schools and an economic impact to education, and argues that some of those links are often very weak, indeed. It concludes that we might want to spend more time on improving the quality of education before we worry overmuch about its universal extent.
