How Foreign Aid Really Work

- Building off of the ideas put for in Does Aid Work, Roger Riddell’s book Does Foreign Aid Really Work expands the work on evaluating the impact of foreign aid. The important difference that sets Riddell’s work apart from previous literature, is the expansion of the definition of aid to be more inclusive that traditional definitions. Most work on the topic up until this point focused specifically on Official Development Assistance, and neglected to account for various other types of aid.

This Really Sucks

- C.G.Jung's comment, "The unconscious mind of man sees correctly even when the conscious reason is blind and impotent", is indicative to Margaret Atwood's book The Edible Woman.
