  • Product Description

Since the success of the Marshall Plan in the economic recovery of Western Europe after WWII foreign aid has been an important tool of foreign policy. Yet there are increasing doubts about the effectiveness of the aid effort. Critics argue that aid is targeted to wasteful regimes and to countries where the environment is not conducive to growth. This book examines aid effectiveness by asking what determines which countries receive aid and how much and what considerations dominate the donors'' and the recipients'' decision processes. The focus is on World Bank lending to Eastern Europe and the donor-recipient relations are presented in a principal-agent framework. Both donors and recipients choose to enter into an aid relationship and the motivations behind these decisions have implications for the effectiveness of aid. The theoretical hypotheses are tested in an empirical model and two case studies. The analysis shows that World Bank involvement has contributed to economic growth in Eastern Europe, but both the Bank and recipient countries face constraints that limit their ability to meet their commitments and this in turn limits the effectiveness of aid.
