Aid in reverse: how poor countries develop rich countries – Via Young African Pioneer + UNITED STATES HYPOCRISY

 

Who is it that’s really receiving ‘aid’ and ‘charity’ ?

Is it the developing nations, or is it those who are

already wealthy through acts of theft and exploitation

that are reaping the benefits?

By Jason Hickel – Via Guardian

We have long been told a compelling story about the relationship between rich countries and poor countries. The story holds that the rich nations of the OECD give generously of their wealth to the poorer nations of the global south, to help them eradicate poverty and push them up the development ladder. Yes, during colonialism western powers may have enriched themselves by extracting resources and slave labour from their colonies – but that’s all in the past. These days, they give more than $125bn (£102bn) in aid each year – solid evidence of their benevolent goodwill.

This story is so widely propagated by the aid industry and the governments of the rich world that we have come to take it for granted. But it may not be as simple as it appears.
