Dambisa Moyo es una economista internacional, especializada en macroeconomía y globalización. Es autora del bestseller (New York times): Dead Aid: Why Aid is Not Working and How there is a Better Way for Africa. Su próximo libro, se titula: How the West Was Lost: Fifty Years of Economic Folly and the Stark Choices Ahead.

Dambisa Moyo aboga por detener las ayudas económicas a los países africanos, excepto en caso de calamidades o catástrofes puntuales (como sucede cuando hay un terremoto o una sequía en el primer mundo), dejando que el continente construya una economía propia en el curso de los próximos cinco años.

El principal argumento de la economista para abolir la actual estructura de ayudas es que la mayoría de gobernantes africanos siguen en sus puestos porque el dinero sigue llegando desde Occidente.

En 2009, Dambisa Moyo fue nombrada por Time Magazine como una de las “100 personas más influyentes del mundo” y nominada para el Foro Económico Mundial de Jóvenes líderes globales. En 2011 publicó How the West Was Lost: Fifty Years of Economic Folly and the Stark Choices Ahead, y en 2012 analizó en Winner take all, la carrera de China por acaparar los recursos naturales y como esto afectaría al resto de la economía mundial.

Terminó su Doctorado en Economía en la Universidad de Oxford y además posee un máster de la Universidad de Harvard y un MBA en Finanzas en la Universidad de Washington D.C.

En sus conferencias, Dambisa Moyo da soluciones económicas y propuestas en políticas públicas ante las situaciones económicas tan alarmantes. Moyo ha trabajado para el Banco Mundial y Goldman Sachs, y regularmente escribe para el Financial Times, The Economist y Wall Street Journal.

La incidencia de China en el panorama económico mundial

El mundo desarrollado sostiene los ideales del capitalismo, la democracia y los derechos políticos para todos. En los mercados emergentes, a veces no pueden darse ese lujo. En esta potente charla, la economista Dambisa Moyo defiende la idea de que Occidente no puede dormirse en los laureles y pensar que los otros lo seguirán ciegamente. Mientras tanto, un modelo distinto, encarnado por China, gana cada vez más adeptos. Hace un llamamiento a la cooperación con amplitud mental política y económica en nombre de la transformación del mundo.

Dead Aid: Why Aid Is Not Working and How There Is a Better Way for Africa

A national bestseller, Dead Aid unflinchingly confronts one of the greatest myths of our time: that billions of dollars in aid sent from wealthy countries to developing African nations has helped to reduce poverty and increase growth. In fact, poverty levels continue to escalate and growth rates have steadily declined―and millions continue to suffer. Debunking the current model of international aid promoted by both Hollywood celebrities and policy makers, Dambisa Moyo offers a bold new road map for financing development of the world's poorest countries.

Much debated in the United States and the United Kingdom on publication, Dead Aid is an unsettling yet optimistic work, a powerful challenge to the assumptions and arguments that support a profoundly misguided development policy in Africa. And it is a clarion call to a new, more hopeful vision of how to address the desperate poverty that plagues millions.

How the West Was Lost: Fifty Years of Economic Folly--and the Stark Choices Ahead

In How the West Was Lost, the New York Times bestselling author Dambisa Moyo offers a bold account of the decline of the West's economic supremacy. She examines how the West's flawed financial decisions have resulted in an economic and geopolitical seesaw that is now poised to tip in favor of the emerging world, especially China.

Amid the hype of China's rise, however, the most important story of our generation is being pushed aside: America is not just in economic decline, but on course to become the biggest welfare state in the history of the West. The real danger is a thome, Moyo claims. While some countries – such as Germany and Sweden – have deliberately engineered and financed welfare states, the United States risks turning itself into a bloated welfare state not because of ideology or a larger vision of economic justice, but out of economic desperation and short-sighted policymaking. How the West Was Lost reveals not only the economic myopia of the West but also the radical solutions that it needs to adopt in order to assert itself as a global economic power once again.

Winner Take All: China's Race For Resources and What It Means For Us

Our planet's resources are running out. The media bombards us with constant warnings of impending shortages of fossil fuels, minerals, arable land, and water and the political Armageddon that will result as insatiable global demand far outstrips supply. But how true is this picture?

In Winner Take All, Dambisa Moyo cuts through the misconceptions and noise surrounding resource scarcity with a penetrating analysis of what really is at stake. Examining the operations of commodity markets and the geopolitical shifts they have triggered, she reveals the hard facts behind the insatiable global demand for economic growth. In this race for global resources, China is way out in front.

China, Moyo reveals, has embarked on one of the greatest commodity rushes in history. Tracing its breathtaking quest for resources - from Africa to Latin America, North America to Europe - she examines the impact it is having on us all, and its profound implications for our future. What, Moyo asks, will be the financial and human effects of all this - and is large-scale resource conflict inevitable or avoidable?

Instead of another polemic, Winner Take All is a clear-eyed look at the realities we all need to face if we want a just, balanced and peaceful global economy for the 21st century.
