Abstract:

Despite the many failures of the past, foreign aid is once again seen as a way to 'make poverty history'. Peter Boone argues that to have a real impact on extreme poverty, aid needs to be much more carefully targeted, allocated on the basis of good scientific evidence of its effectiveness and delivered through well-designed institutions.
