How Black Countries Developed White Countries

AFRICANGLOBE - Aid is effectively flowing in reverse. Rich countries aren’t developing poor countries; poor countries are developing rich ones. In 2012, the last year of recorded data, developing countries received a total of $1.3tn, including all aid, investment, and income from abroad. But that same year some $3.3tn flowed out of them. In other words, developing countries sent $2tn more to the rest of the world than they received. If we look at all years since 1980, these net outflows add up to an eye-popping total of $16.3tn – that’s how much money has been drained out of the global south over the past few decades.
