Give and Take

What's the Matter with Foreign Aid

Foreign aid is a global endeavour with a huge turnover. But it is a troubled industry with few successes to its name, yet expected to respond to new and very complex problems. Can it do so?

Foreign aid is a global endeavour with a huge turnover. But it is a troubled industry with few successes to its name, yet expected to respond to new and very complex problems. Can it do so? Supposed to be benign and selfless, it often harms more than it helps, and benefits givers more than receivers. Can it stop doing so? Can we create a system of genuine help -- democratic in its execution, effective in its impact, adequate in scale, just in its consequences? Give and Take grasps these questions.

Foreign aid is an issue that concerns us all, financially and morally. This thoughtful book argues that aid must be made less of a problem, more of a solution.
