Development in Dangerous Places

An amazing piece in the Boston Review (props to FP Passport for the heads up) on the issue of development in failing and otherwise troubled states. Paul Collier’s anchor article offers the most striking commentary; that wealthy states are in best position to provide a solution to the security dilemma found in failing states, even through military intervention.  The other gem (or gems) in this feature are the thoughtful responses from more than a few heavy hitters in the World Politics/Development/Academia spheres: Krasner, Easterly, Diamond (Larry, not Jared), Miguel, McGovern, and Birdsall.  Thoughtful and provocative discussions all around.
