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.
