Perhaps the most consistent argument against the book is that it was written before the credit crisis, so the main alternatives to aid offered in the book – trade, foreign direct investment and assessing the capital markets by issuing bonds – are no longer valid.

Rather than being an excuse for yet another round of ineffective aid flows, the credit crisis is a unique opportunity for African and international policymakers to change their staid way of thinking about financing Africa's economic development.
