Over the past sixty years, developed countries have poured hundreds of
billions of dollars into helping the developing countries of the world
escape the trap of poverty, disease, and lack of hope. This aid has come
through direct grants and through organizations such as the World Bank,
the United Nations Development Program, regional development banks, and
a variety of nongovernmental organizations. Unfortunately, while a
small number of countries such as South Korea and China have emerged
with viable economies, far more have sunk deeper into debt and have seen
larger portions of their populations fall into poverty.
