My main point is that the contribution made by aid cannot have exceeded the avoided cost of borrowing.
This underlying belief is important not only for Bauers analysis of domestic policy but also for his treatment of international economic relations,.g., his conviction that aid should not go to governments whose external policies conflict with the interests of the donors.
(3) I have not said that in an open society individuals get their just deserts.The concept can easily handle coordination of hundreds of swarm agents in a fully distributed manner, while not even requiring a digital processor in each agent.(2) Sen refers to Hong Kong, inter alia, as showing that greater income equality need not conflict with fast growth.His remarks on these factual matters (points 5, 7, 8, 10, and 11 while interesting in themselves, do not answer the main criticisms.I did not suggest that Bauer had referred to the motivations of the proponents of an argument to debunk the validity of their argument.The arising self-organizing behavior (emergent behavior) is obtained from basic neural characteristic of a swarm agent.This work provides a scalable, low cost swarming solution that can be used in water, air, and on land.Incidentally, since this implicit assumption about ones right to what one has earned colors a great deal of Bauers policy analysis, he is not really accurate in suggesting that only 30 out of some 300 pages of his book bear on the subject of egalitarianism.Egalitarianism is the dog that does not bark in many of the other 270 pages.My review, however, was almost entirely concerned with the argumentsfactual and moralrather than with the proponents.Peter Bauer, reply by, amartya Sen, june 10, 1982 Issue, in response to: Just Deserts from the March 4, 1982 issue.
Bauer's research focus before coming to Notre Dame was on multi-dimensional systems, in particular the stability of m-D nonlinear and time-variant systems.
(10) I agree that some aid receiving countries have prospered.
