Cooperation of developed economies and international organizations with developing economies
AbstractThe Developing world suffers from the economic delay behind developed economies which is allied with poverty, a high pace of population growth, illiteracy, malnutrition and the degradation of environment. This fact requires more and more international development aid that should lead to sustainable development, to a larger participation of dwellers on public decisions and to a deceleration of increase of population. However, the reality is often different. Since nearly half a century poor countries are smothered by big financial gifts and resources, banked by a lot of advisors, experts and administrators but the living standard in these countries has almost not increased. Development projects of various countries and international organizations are often failing in the phase of realization and financial resources are disappearing in the hands of political representatives of these states. The efficiency of development aid is in reality debatable as the level of these states is almost not changing and the question whether international aid stimulates economic growth and instigates an efficiency of the economy of receiver remains.
