Her reasoning is based on the arguments of aid sup- porters. She tries to demonstrate that these arguments are wrong and that aid is therefore harmful. Although there are problems re- lated to aid, a different approach to solving the problem is suggested. Instead of stopping aid, a better way to overcome some side effects would be the ne- gotiating of goals and the conditionality of aid in a partnership before aid starts, as proposed in the Poverty Reduction Strategy Papers.
The book made her to some kind of a shooting star Moyo in the group of people who blame African countries itself for their development problems. Today, Moyo seems to be the best known person in this group for the public. At first we sketch their argumentation. Then we discuss it but take into account some additional facts not regarded by Moyo.
Then the approach of the so called Poverty Reduction Strategy Papers is introduced. In a short sketch of the history of aid, she mentions the hope that aid could trigger higher investments and higher income. She also notices that this did not happen, but forgets to discuss why aid was given over a very long time during the so-called Cold War. Moyo states that aid is not working and addresses the reasons.
These reasons are the very arguments of the supporters of continued aid and she tries to disprove all of them. Something like a Marshall Plan is inappropriate and the original Marshall Plan was quite different from the current given aid Moyo p. After stating that aid does not work, she identifies several things that prevent growth. These are corruption, the dependency of the donors to give aid!
There is still the question of how to finance development, though. Can a government use free-market tools and still maintain its socialist values? Moyo shows us her very own ideology here: The free financial market and its rule are dominant and everyone has to follow these rules, regardless of ideology. The rules of the financial market are considered natural laws and therefore unchangeable and not manmade.
She suggests using the whole worldwide financial systems of capitalism, like bonds and loans, international investors and so on. But she forget to mention the debts!
