MRW - Podcast - David Pilling (guest) - March 28, 2018

This week, Drew and Chris are joined by David Pilling author of “Growth Delusion”.

David Pilling, long-time Asia Editor of the Financial Times, has now added Africa to his portfolio, following a move to London in 2016. David has long spoken about business, economics and politics in China, India, Japan and across Asia more generally. He now adds close-up knowledge of Africa, with a particular emphasis on Nigeria and South Africa and some of the continent's more promising economies from Ethiopia and Rwanda to Kenya. He is also an expert on the fast-developing and geopolitically significant relationship between China and Africa.
 
In his newest book, The Growth Delusion: Wealth, Poverty and the Well-being of Nations, David explores how economists and their cult of growth have hijacked our policy-making and infiltrated our thinking about what makes societies work. A provocative critique of the pieties and fallacies of our obsession with economic growth.
