All aid is very different based on the area the aid is being given and the people the aid is being given to.

We'll never solve the first tragedy, Easterly argues, unless we figure out the second. The ironies are many: We preach a gospel of freedom and individual accountability, yet we intrude in the inner workings of other countries through bloated aid bureaucracies like the International Monetary Fund and World Bank that are accountable
