Books on Ethnic Minorities in Developing Countries Dominating Said Countries' Economy?
October 5, 2004 1:28 PM   Subscribe

Amy Chua's book "World On Fire: How Exporting Free Market Democracy Breeds Ethnic Hatred and Global Instability"discusses how ethnic minorities in many developing countries dominate the country economically. (The Chinese in many southeast Asian countries, whites in parts of Africa, etc)

Do any other MeFites know of other books or resources that discuss this phenomenon? (which undoubtely will only become more prevalaent as the world globalizes)

Hernando de Soto's work might be interesting to you as another point of view. He does conclude that market economies are important, but he spends time talking about what creates market economies that aren't slanted to the already wealthy/elite.

A second recommendation for de Soto. He's also spent a significant amount of time on the ground in developing countries putting his theories into practice, starting with his native country of Peru.
