Overview

This book uses simple algebra and statistical analysis to map and define possible solutions to a grave problem the world is facing today: the relationship between developed ("Have") countries that act as donors in giving international aid to developing ("Have-not") recipient countries. These societies have differences stemming from diverse cultural and religious histories that have led to moral, ethical and cognitive behavior in many recipient countries that is incomparably, irreversibly and increasingly heterogeneous from donor societies. The analysis proves that when donor and recipient countries have such irreconcilable differences any attempt on the part of the donor to aid the recipient is counterproductive to the point of causing complete socioeconomic and political melt-down in both recipient and donor nations. A promising alternative solution to this "Doomsday Scenario" is developed.
