dc.description.abstractIn a report presented at the UN Conference on Financing for Development inMarch 2002, the World Bank claims that the effectiveness of its financial aid hasimproved substantially by targeting aid at poor developing countries pursuingsound economic policies. This paper argues that the World Bank's success storyrests on a weak empirical foundation. The evidence does not support the viewthat poverty concerns and policy assessments dominated the distribution ofWorld Bank financing in the 1990s. We conclude that the task of improving theallocation of aid is far from being accomplished. Finally, we discuss someimplications of our findings for the future role of the World Bank indevelopment financing.en_US
