Corruption and the lack of economic development breeds greater poverty for the whole of society. Extreme poverty is usually dealt with on the large scale through international aid, that is the donation of money to poorer countries. However international aid has been criticised by economists such as James Shikwati and William Easterly for feeding corruption, disrupting the local economies and destroying incentives. Arguably if a countries economy is doing well and corruption is minimised, poverty would naturally be alleviated as a consequence. This makes investments and pro-trade policy a lot more effective than aid, and means that economic development is a more powerful tool than donations in the fight against poverty.
