On the other hand proponents of international aid argue that the idea that self-reliance and global market forces will benefit all countries equally is fundamentally flawed. There are biases within the global economy that favor rich countries at the expense of poor ones, not least because of the concentration of corporate power in the North.

Donors’ economic interests also explain a significant part of the variation in foreign aid flows, . donors allocate some aid with the aim of expanding their own markets, creating sources of cheap imports from developing countries, and protecting foreign investments of their private companies.

Companies that lie on their trade invoices are clearly at fault; but why is it so easy for them to get away with it? In the past, customs officials could hold up transactions that looked dodgy, making it nearly impossible for anyone to cheat.

Imagine if India set up an ID card scheme in a very different place like Haiti. Then they have the world's attention and can sell consulting services to countries looking to establish their own ID card programs, creating a local industry that can spin off from the government entity and become a global enterprise. Every body wants to blame corrupt African governments, so they absolve themselves of any blame.
