Trade and Aid

  • Paul Mosley
Chapter

Abstract

‘Trade not aid’, the slogan associated in particular with UNCTAD, is an attractive nostrum. Open up the economies of advanced countries to the free trade with all-comers which their governments preach, runs the underlying rationale, and Third World countries will be able to expand their exports to a point which makes the aid given by those same governments unnecessary. Development can then proceed on a basis of mutual self-respect, rather than on a basis which inflicts economic and technological dependence on Third World countries.
