‘The Global Agenda’

Significant progress has been made in advancing the global development agenda [in 2005]. Now donor countries must move beyond commitments to developing concrete plans that make effective use of aid – plans that deliver results for the poor. For their part, developing countries must continue their efforts to build transparent and accountable institutions that promote growth and respond to the needs of the poor… Both rich and poor countries will have to think about how to make effective use of the additional aid that has been promised.

That is WB President Paul Wolfowitz in Global Agenda, the magazine of the Davos Forum. Everyone from Stiglitz and Bhagwati to Chomsky and Angelina Jolie also have pieces in the issue.
