Description

Details

Christians in wealthy nations have an obligation to help people in extreme poverty in developing economies, but how is this duty best discharged? Church leaders have often recommended government-to-government aid transfers as one important strategy. Philip Booth, relying on the principles of Catholic social teaching and the evidence of development economics, argues that this strategy has largely failed. Booth discusses the indispensable conditions for economic development, urges us to reconsider our approach to international aid in light of this evidence, and reminds us that material welfare is only one dimension of integral human development.
