About the product
This extremely lucid and entertaining book provides a fresh new indictment of the international aid establishment that serious students of development, both in high-income and developing economies, must confront. Turning the tables on donor agency reports that blame limitations in local capacity to deliver, including as the result of corruption and rent-seeking, for the limited success of many development initiatives in Pakistan, it traces those limitations back to the stultifying effects on local intellectual vitality and drive to the dominant presence of those agencies themselves and their pursuit of donor-driven policy agendas. Most crucially, the intellectual passivity that results in the absence of local ownership in aid initiatives is traced back to the corrosive effects on domestic intellectual vitality and creativity of the incentives created by the aid establishment. This is a provocative but entirely plausible thesis that those who are committed to improving the economic wellbeing of the world?s poor, both in Pakistan and elsewhere, must take seriously.
