Current foreign aid programs are failing because they are based upon flawed assumptions about how countries develop. They attempt to achieve development without first achieving good governance and security, which are essential prerequisites for sustainable development. In focusing on the poorer members of society, they neglect the elites upon whose leadership the quality of governance and security depends. By downplaying the relevance of cultural factors to development, they avoid altering cultural characteristics that account for most of the weaknesses of elites in poor nations. Drawing on a wealth of examples from around the world, the author shows that foreign aid can be made much more effective by focusing it on human capital development. Training, education, and other forms of assistance can confer both skills and cultural attributes on current and future leaders, especially those responsible for security and governance.

    This book provides politicians, aid organizations, and taxpayers a compelling argument for fundamentally changing foreign aid. Foreign aid has been ineffective because it has been based upon flawed assumptions about national development. Aid can be made effective by shifting emphasis from poverty alleviation to leadership cultivation and cultural transformation.
