Forlagets beskrivelse
While the world has made encouraging strides in the fight against global poverty, there is a hidden crisis silently undermining our best efforts to help the poor.It is a plague of everyday violence.Beneath the surface of the worlds poorest communities, common violencelike rape, forced labor, illegal detention, land theft, police abuse and other brutalityhas become routine and relentless. And like a horde of locusts devouring everything in their path, the unchecked plague of violence ruins lives, blocks the road out of poverty, and undercuts development.How has this plague of violence grown so ferocious? The answer is terrifying, and startlingly simple: Theres nothing shielding the poor from violent people. In one of the most remarkableand unremarked uponsocial disasters of the last half century, basic public justice systems in the developing world have descended into a state of utter collapse.Gary A. Haugen and Victor Boutros offer a searing account of how we got hereand what it will take to end the plague. Filled with vivid real-life stories and startling new data, The Locust Effect is a gripping journey into the streets and slums where fear is a daily reality for billions of the worlds poorest, where safety is secured only for those with money, and where much of our well-intended aid is lost in the daily chaos of violence.While their call to action is urgent, Haugen and Boutros provide hope, a real solution and an ambitious way forward. The Locust Effect is a wake-up call. Its massive implications will forever change the way we understand global povertyand will help secure a safe path to prosperity for the global poor in the 21st century.
