The White Man’s Burden
“This factual, sober, and very timelybook deals with issues surroundingthe higher incomes and longer livesenjoyed by an increasing proportionof the world’s population. . . . Deaton’sarguments, written in an elegant andaccessible style, are powerful and chal-lenge conventional opinions.”

Health, Wealth, and the Origins of Inequality
A D
The world is a better place than it used to be. People arewealthier and healthier, and live longer lives. Yet the escapesfrom destitution by so many have left gaping inequalitiesbetween people and between nations. In
The Great Escape
,Angus Deaton—one of the foremost experts on economicdevelopment and on poverty—tells the remarkable story of how, starting two hundred and fifty years ago, some parts of the world began to experience sustained progress, opening upgaps and setting the stage for today’s hugely unequal world.Deaton takes an in-depth look at the historical and ongoingpatterns behind the health and wealth of nations, and he ad-dresses what needs to be done to help those left behind.Deaton describes vast innovations and wrenching set-backs: the successes of antibiotics, pest control, vaccinations,and clean water on the one hand, and disastrous famines andthe HIV/AIDS epidemic on the other. He examines the UnitedStates, a nation that has prospered but is today experiencingslower growth and increasing inequality. He also considershow economic growth in India and China has improved thelives of more than a billion people. Deaton argues that interna-tional aid has been ineffective and even harmful. He suggestsalternative efforts—including reforming incentives to drugcompanies and lifting trade restrictions—that will allow thedeveloping world to bring about its own Great Escape.Demonstrating how changes in health and living stan-dards have transformed our lives,
The Great Escape
is a power-ful guide to addressing the well-being of all nations.
Angus Deaton
is the Dwight D. Eisenhower Professor of Economics and International Affairs in the Woodrow WilsonSchool of Public and International Affairs and the Econom-ics Department at Princeton University. His many booksinclude
The Analysis of Household Surveys
and
Economics and Consumer Behavior 
. He is a past president of the AmericanEconomic Association.
