Differentiating between Aid and Development

Easterly's blog is quickly becoming a favorite of mine because of the excellent back and forth debates but also because of his views that challenge development orthodoxy. Whether or not one differentiates between aid and development marks is a basic acid test for me in terms of how someone would approach development. Easterly considers the blurring distinctions at USAID - which to be frank, I found to be one of the better agencies while I was in Uganda (but this was a number of years ago).
