  • Doina,

    I agree with all comments, notably those of Sally and George,
    I find George's statement 'The great paradox of international aid is that resources meant to alleviate humanitarian suffering often perpetuate it' extremely expressive

    Great call to help poor nations.

  • I agree with you Doina, Africa needs our help not our aid. Most historical evidence shows that developing world aid recipients are more debt-laden, inflation-prone and likely to experience conflict and corruption.

    President Kagame, recipient of £83 million of direct aid, recently purchased presidential jets worth £60 million. International aid has also contributed to Rwanda’s conflict with neighbouring Congo (in which 5 million people were killed ) and prolonged Rwanda’s genocide. When $1.5 billion was donated to deal with a cholera epidemic in Rwanda, Hutu militias stole 60% to fund their crimes.
    The Horn of Africa crisis owes some origins to international aid. In 1980s Ethiopia, £90 million of aid was used to lure starving villagers into state camps, from where 600,000 were deported and at least 100,000 died . Using British and Russian aid, Somalia embarked upon a territorial conflict with Ethiopia, which neither nation could afford. Today, warlords rule most of Somalia, expropriating up to 80% of aid that goes there.
    The great paradox of international aid is that resources meant to alleviate humanitarian suffering often perpetuate it. Western living standards can only be exported through free trade and more open migration laws.

    Free trade gives poorer countries a competitive advantage to exploit, so they can trade their way to prosperity. Instead of giving dictators money to disperse, enterprising citizens earn the money themselves. Governments can still rob their people, but have to allow at least some commerce to take place to do so.
