The well-known failures of foreign aid - machines rusting in fields for want of simple spares, supplies never reaching the right people, corrupt leaders lining their pockets - are only the tip of the iceberg. All too often foreign aid can become an instrument of harm that plunders the environment, increases human suffering and even violates the human rights that we, who sit at home, think we are helping. The villains seem to be the huge energy projects, especially the hydro-electric dams, driving people from their land, destroying their cultures and trampling on religious rights. The perpetrators are not the individuals who approve these vast projects but the process that permits these atrocities to occur - a process that is tainted at every step of the way, from the role of our own governments to that of the governments in the Third World. This book spells out the damage that our foreign aid has wrought, explains where the process went wrong and sets out the remedies needed to prevent future repetition.

Part 1 Dispossessing the disenfranchised - the foreign aid myths: foreign aid is humanitarian and does not violate human rights; eventually, the billions we're spending on our energy aid will pay off for the Third World's poor; whatever else happens, developing renewable resources, such as hydroelectricity, means that our gift will last forever; we can kill two birds with one stone by.

Foreign aid is defined as the voluntary transfer of resources from one country to another country. Foreign aid can be in the form of a loan or a grant. It may be in either a soft or hard loan. This distinction means that if repayment of the aid requires a foreign currency, then it is a hard loan. If it is in the home currency, then it’s a soft loan. The World Bank lends in hard loans, while the loans of its affiliates are soft loans. Foreign aid is one of the most significant sources of foreign exchange. There are five different types of foreign aid programs.

John Adams (1735-1826) was an American Founding Father who served as one of the most important diplomats on behalf of the new United States of America during the American Revolution.

The level of foreign aid expenditures following World War II dwarfed prewar assistance. The postwar programs of the United Kingdom, France, and other European former colonial powers grew out of the assistance they had provided to their colonial possessions. Beginning in the late 20th century, humanitarian assistance to African countries was provided in increasing amounts to alleviate suffering from natural disasters, the HIV/ AIDS epidemic, and destructive civil wars. Major initiatives to combat HIV/AIDS focused on the hardest-hit countries, most of which are in sub-Saharan Africa.
