In this paper I test predictions for aid effectiveness based on an analytical framework that relates aid effectiveness to political regimes. The World Bank also has been accused of undertaking too many environmentally, socially and economically detrimental projects at the expense of the poorest nations.

The second way in which the donors should use to channel money to the private development finance is through tax break to those individuals who work in their states and sent money home. We find strong evidence that both military aid and arms transfers to post-conflict governments increase state repression. Instead of the channeling aids through the government to government path, the government can come up with policies that will direct the dynamic flows of private development capital that the donor countries give.
