From the cover: “The global recession of the early 1980s prompted a revolution in aid policy. The major aid organisations, and the World Bank in particular, increasingly made flows of aid conditional on changes in policy, usually of a type that reduced the level of government intervention in the economy.

This book considers the impact of this policy revolution on the relationship between donor organisations and developing countries, concentrating on the ‘policy bargaining’ process that is now the focus of the aid relationship. It also examines whether policies which the World Bank has promoted have been effective in transforming the economies of poor countries.

Volume 2 contains the results of nine major case studies, involving countries in three continents.”
