The West offered aid, and the East accepted it

The West offered aid, and the East accepted it. Western politicians came to show support. So how, in a few short years, did this promising cooperation become filled with so much disillusionment? Many recipients wanted to know “where have all these billions gone?” Eastern citizens developed negative impressions of Western advisers, saying, “foreigners don’t understand our conditions” or “these bureaucrats can’t tell my country from Shangri-La.” The disillusionment was often mutual. Donor representatives would grumble in private, “they [the recipients] just can’t handle it,” “they have no sense of democracy,” or “it’s a gift–why are they complaining?”
