The only thing better than being a fox is being a fox asked to watch over the hens. Making Good Easier is in; Making Bad Harder is a taboo topic not least because a lot of the money on the table came from doing bad, according to Giridharadas. As the quotes hopefully demonstrate, Giridharadas writes like a dream over 10 years at the NY Times , and like any good journalist, he is an excellent listener.
Winners Take All by Anand Giridharadas review – superb hate-reading
The best chapters, in the middle of the book, are built around interviews with members of MarketWorld. Or Sean Hinton, who wrestles brilliantly with his role at the Soros Foundation. Both are perceptive, agonized and full of doubt about where they have ended up and the book gives a fair, nuanced account of their ambiguities — reform v revolution; short term v long term; how much can you achieve if you are outside the tent?
But Giridharadas is not so nuanced when he is alone on the page, when he seems to take a cruder, polemical line: the individuals may be honourable but the enterprise stinks; this is all about self preservation; what is needed is a much greater role for the state. He portrays MarketWorld as a monolith, showing no interest in teasing it apart to see if its various manifestations social enterprises, impact investors, social impact bonds, management consultants have different strengths and weaknesses.
Nor does he ever discuss where the boundaries between state and market should lie.
The book ends with a bemused Bill Clinton, who announced the end of his Clinton Global Initiative an archetypal MarketWorld affair weeks before Donald Trump was elected. To what extent is Trump its latest incarnation, or is he the harbinger of something new? It needs another chapter there. All in all, a great polemic and exercise in framing the role and assumptions of Davos Man and Woman but a bit thin on the detail.

Thanks , Duncan, for this unsurprising but brilliant review. Slightly disappointing at the end where your academic distance approach takes over in that you are not telling us what you think of the value of this book and the work of Anand.
