Agreed that aid can create dependency and that self-interested politicians can hoard wealth and stymie development.

Also agree that access to international markets can be a most positive development tool, and that without it, poor econmies have little chance to make their own way.

But what of aid in the form of medical resources, what of aid programmes that support ethnic minorities what of aid programs that provide peace keeping forces.

Poorly designed or implemented programs clearly create long term problems, it was ever thus.

But is the author prepared to sacrifice a range of fundamental life sustaining services to people who have had no say in their political processes or the path out of poverty?
