Obligatory Dead Aid Post

So there's been loads of chat about Dambisa Moyo's new book by much smarter people than me (here, here, here and here), but I think I can answer David Roodman's question - "why is anyone paying attention to this book?"

Because she's a hot economist, and hot female famous economists are in pretty short supply. I noticed this a while ago when some friends were telling me about which male economists they had crushes on, and I couldn't think of anyone. Simple.
