Dambisa Moyo was born (1969) and raised in Lusaka, Zambia. She is a bestselling author and international economist who comments on the macroeconomy and global affairs.
Moyo shot to international prominence with her first book, Dead Aid, which was published in 2009 by Penguin. Two points can be made from the book – one, Aid is not working for Africa and two, there is another way apart from aid. This way is what Moyo calls the Dead Aid proposal.
