      Oversimplifies solutions he suggests for use of world's resources. Doesn't seem to take enough account of greed and corruption.Not enough about what will happen when all non-renewables are used up and controlling world population growth.

      Underlying some interesting arguments is what seems to me a fundamentally flawed premise--that our planet consists of resources and a single species that has the right to use them ("The oceans are not national territory; they are the true global dominion of mankind" is not the only statement of this kind in the book). Collier pays attention to future humans but ignores all other species. Humans aren't the only consumers of the fish that he discusses at length, yet he makes no mention of those ot [...]

      Thought provoking book on tough subject that asks us to think outside jumping on the popular and or romantic bandwagon of environmentalism.

      Paul Collier writes well about economics and development of poorer nations. The Bottom Billion, his award-winning manual on what holds nations back and how they can overcome their challenges, earned him invitations from leaders around the world. The Plundered Planet delves further into one of the difficulties identified in The Bottom Billion: the difficulty emerging nations face in reaping the benefits of natural resources. How to capture the value of natural resources and preserve their wealth [...]

      Collier presents an interesting account of the challenges developing states face when attempting to balance environmental concerns and economic development. Collier lays out the challenges to explore the ways in which development countries have recently dealt with the political/economic expectations of their populations and the world's growing concern about the environment. Collier spends a lot of time focused on the way that developing countries have been exploited by outside corporations as th [...]

      Interesting book about our natural resources and how they are used and abused. Lots of stories from countries around the world. What exactly should we do with natural resources? We have already over-fished the oceans, with everyone looking out for their own interests, plunder is what happens. A country like Norway has benefited tremendously. They saved all the money they got for their oil and invested it. They distribute the income from the investments to their citizens. That way, the money is n [...]

      In this follow up to The Bottom Billion, Collier considers the importance of environmental stewardship as it relates to fighting poverty, and discusses the realities of resource extraction in Africa. These are emotionally powerful issues for many people but Collier treats them with a measured, philosophical distance. This leads him to some positions that don't seem to sit well with environmentalism (he is FOR conventional agriculture and oil exploration) but his ideas and research methods are an [...]

      Paul Collier is a well known name amongst economists and indeed I was given this book by a friend who studies economics. It provides a completely different insight into sustainability, the environment and importantly offers real credible solutions. As an engineer, at times I found Collier's style of writing monotonous and economic terms hard to grasp, nonetheless there are some gems littered throughout the book and it is worth persevering. In particular these three poignant equations:"nature + t [...]

      I like Collier because he takes problems we've all heard about, breaks them down rationally, and then creates solutions. I wonder how plausible the solutions are given political reality, but seeing world leaders calling on Collier gives me some hope. I also think the solutions are more practical than radical changes (or radical denial) advocated from each of the political extremes.As the title implies, Collier deals with the topics of resource extraction and management of global environmental/na [...]

      More technical than I was expecting, but still an interesting and wide-ranging analysis on many aspects of sustainable development. Collier is a brilliant mind and he is able to jump between many different social and environmental issues seemingly effortlessly. My mind had to work a little harder to make sure I fully grasped the concepts. Overall, a good, though dense, read.

      I really enjoyed Collier's "The Bottom Billion", and think that he did a good job of following up on that with "The Plundered Planet". Unfortunately, I think he went astray at the end when discussing ag policy for africa, and left me with a bad taste in my mouth.

      Otro libro lleno de "bon sens", respaldado a su vez por una sólida economía. Una lectura útil, casi obligatoria para no repetir, como en nuestro caso, los viejos errores en el manejo de los recursos naturales, para que estos sirvan bien a los que viven hoy y a los que vivirán mañana.

      Scary. What more can be said, but we need to do something to prepare for the calamitous weather we have created for ourselves. Unfortunately those to be most affected, live on far away islands and parts of Africa, where we Americans will feel little remorse.

      Great book with really wide reaching implications towards providing actual solutions for world hunger. Great argument against the banning of GM crops and the general "fear of science" that seems to be prevalent today.
