For the past ten years I have been working for and studying "developing" countries, including India, Bangladesh, Thailand, and Nicaragua. My ten-years of experience raises a simple but fundamental question: Why has it been reported that many developing countries have been getting poorer (McClintock, A. in Williams, P. & Chrisman, L. Colonial Discourse and Post-colonial Theory. Columbia University Press. 1994) despite international aid and development projects2 which are supposed to empower people in these countries? I have been searching for the answer to this question.
