Overview

Facsimiles of 32 articles published between 1970 and 2001 in economic and political journals, examine aspects of the history of foreign aid that are of significance to the new global economy. They analyze key issues and debates within the overall theme of making aid more effective, and the question of who decides what effectiveness is and how. The themes are the international political economy of aid, aid effectiveness in the economic context, aid and government fiscal behavior, the political economy of aid allocation, and donor politics leading to influences and tied aid. Within each section are some seminal articles that began the research and set the agenda, and more recent studies revealing the state of that research. Only names are indexed.
