Reciprocate aid. Apply Chufle* (a new word), trim the World Bank and the United Nations, deliver FACULTI* (a programme acronym), abrogate the 0.7% target and implement the Churchill-Fleming model form part of the aid rescue pill in ‚ÄėMurdering Poverty‚Äô. Arrey‚Äôs book could easily have been called the Aid Renaissance with is fundamental proposal to overhaul the global development aid behemoth of an industry. ‚ÄúAid has received a lot of stick over the past few years for failing to deliver what it promises: lift people out of poverty,‚ÄĚ the author said. ‚ÄúIt is important to acknowledge the massive problems plaguing the system but beyond that, I think this is the right opportunity to reform aid.‚ÄĚ‚ÄėMurdering Poverty ‚Äď How to fix aid‚Äô refreshes the reader‚Äôs mind with the 24 sins of aid before delving into solutions that would surely get some experts cursing beneath their breath. ‚ÄúIt‚Äôs sad that aid has become business as usual. Development aid should serve the poor and not exploit poverty.‚ÄĚThe book is a disruptive banter into normative economics and a sharp protest against the status quo. It holds ideas which according to the author‚Äôs own calculations could be applicable by international development professionals from their next day at work.
