From "Debating foreign aid: right versus left"

By Jean-Philippe Thérien (Third World Quarterly, Vol 23, No 3, 2002, p. 460).

In the 1960s, for instance, the Left put forward a concept of development that focused on industrialisation almost as heavily as the one advocated by the Right. More recently, the Left has moved unmistakably closer to the Right in its appraisal of the role of the state in the economy. Other issues as well, such as the link between aid and the maintenance of corrupt regimes, have given rise to comparable analyses from the Left and Right.
