This page in:

Jagdish_bhagwati Question: What do you think about professor Jeffrey Sachs' argument for a dramatic increase in foreign aid? Do you side with William Easterly in the debate?

[…] I doubt professor Sachs ever pays attention to [...] sophisticated objections, always dismissing those who raise them as if they were wicked conservatives with horns and no brains. But Easterly is equally wrong in arguing that aid hardly works.
