SUMMARY: Istituto Acton organized an event for the presentation of Peter T. Bauer's Dalla Sussistenza allo scambio. Uno sguardo critico sugli aiuti allo sviluppo (From subsidy to change, a critical view on foreign aid and development). The event took place at the Pontifical University of the Holy Cross before an audience of academics, business professionals, entrepeneurs and clergy. The debate focused on the negative effects foreign aid has on developing countries, arguing that true solutions are found in entrepenuership and free market economy.
