    Abstract

    Foreign aid is supposed to encourage low-income states to develop;yet critics across the ideological spectrum accuse it of doing theopposite. Conservatives and libertarians condemn foreign aid for givinguntrustworthy leaders resources they can use to repress theirpopulations. Progressives and radicals take a similar position; they seeaid corroding indigenous democratic institutions needed for nationalwell being and self-determination.
