What really happens when the World Bank imposes its policies on a country? This is an insider's view of one aid-made crisis. Peter Griffiths was at the interface between government and the Bank.

This is a rare and important portrait of the aid world which insiders will recognize, but of which the general public seldom gets a glimpse.
