Formatted abstract
The thesis examines the apparent irreconcilability of the foreign aid views of various schools of economic thought. Because of the dearth of empirical evidence either to support the aid optimist’s case, or the critiques of the aid pessimists, it was necessary to delve into each school’s philosophical preconceptions to expose the biases of such irresolution. In fact, the whole question of economic scientific testability is discussed, as a prerequisite to an analysis of the ‘trade versus aid’ empirical debate. The analysis of such a debate revealed serious deficiencies in the application of neo-classical theory to the problems of third world development. Conclusions are then drawn from an empirical study of Australian foreign aid within this context.
