Damned Nations by Samantha Nutt

Samantha's book; "Damned Nations" is a must read for anyone who wants to understand how international capital is linked to the resources and conflicts in the least developed parts of the world. You will also get an eye opener on how the money you donate to charities is used. She expounds on voluntourism and orphanages as some of the growing trends that perpetuate miseries in the third world. You will be interested to note that there are no orphanages in the USA and Canada!Quite an interesting observation.
