Liberal and progressive people have few doubts about foreign aid, or indeed about the beneficent role of foreign capital in general, of which, of course, aid is only one form.1 Most of the doubts, or at least the most outspoken criticisms, seem to come from the far right of the political spectrum,2 from people who question on philosophical grounds the case for an international redistribution of income and who argue on empirical grounds that aid in practice has strengthened the state relative to the private sector, has promoted central planning and weakened the market mechanism and, more often than not, has supported despotism rather than liberty.
