This refers to the paradoxical situation wherein countries that are blessed with good institutions to achieve economic growth have no need for foreign aid, while countries that possess poor institutions that inhibit their growth do not benefit from any amount of foreign aid. It was proposed by British development economist Peter Thomas Bauer in his 1971 book, Dissent on Development.
