(IRIN Global) -
Daniel Runde, of the Washington-based Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), has just lobbed a firecracker into the debate over the future of aid and development.

It is time, instead, he says, to concentrate on helping developing countries reach a position from which they can end poverty and deliver social goods for themselves.
