Aid and Development: Who Benefits?
We have seen the structure of inequality among societies in the world economy dominated by the capitalist ‘North’. In this chapter we shall ask whether this inequality is reduced by aid to the poorer sectors of the globe. There is much general literature that has been published in this area, and many case studies describing the impact of specific aid programmes. I do not propose to examine in detail the varied assistance packages that may be currently in operation but instead to offer a general overview of the pattern, record and prospects of aid.
