  • About the Edition

    Africa is poor. If we send it money it will be less poor. It seems simple. Jonathan Glennie argues that government aid to Africa actually has many very harmful effects. He claims that aid has often meant more poverty, more hungry people, worse basic services for poor people and damage to already precarious democratic institutions.
