Thesis on measure the effectiveness of foreign aid in the solution towards development of Bangladesh

Despite large amounts of foreign aid research conducted over the past several decades, there is no consensus among development scholars on whether development assistance actually promotes growth in recipient countries. The complex interplay of political, economic, and social forces at work within developing countries makes it difficult to determine the impact of aid projects in those countries. Due to development’s reciprocal relationships and the challenge of limited data availability, scholars have come to various understandings of the effectiveness of foreign aid projects in stimulating development and reducing poverty. Some studies suggest that aid leads to growth given the right conditions, while others provide compelling evidence that it is fruitless, or perhaps even detrimental to recipient countries’ political and economic growth.

There are a number of mechanisms through which aid can contribute to economic growth, including
  • Aid increases investment, in physical and human capital;
  • Aid increases the capacity to import capital goods or technology;
  • Aid does not have indirect effects that reduce investment or savings rates; and aid is associated with technology transfer that increases the productivity of capital and promotes endogenous technical change.
