Abstract/Summary Since mass poverty in developing countries is still the single most important social and economic problem in the world today, the question of what states should do about poverty remains a key issue for governments and international donor agencies across the world. Throughout the 1990s, the broad thrust of policy in many developing countries was to move away from interventionist and state-controlled policies towards market-oriented approaches. This shift in emphasis had far-reaching implications for policies and operational programs in both developing countries and international donor agencies. The operations of what could be called the "development industry" became more complicated during the 1990s.
