Development and Social Goals: Balancing Aid and Development to Prevent ‘Welfare Colonialism’
AbstractIn the paper the author tries to explain why the Millennium Goals, with which the world community is approaching the social problems in the poor countries, cannot be considered as good social policy in the long run. The key insight of the author is that having an inefficient manufacturing sector produces a higher standard of living than having no manufacturing sector at all.
