ABSTRACT
The article discusses the issue of providing foreign aid to the best-governed low-income states ignoring the pressing plight of poorly governed states by the U.S. Having identified weak and failing states as a significant threat to both U.S. security interests and the international order, the U.S. President George W. Bush administration has failed to formulate any strategy for dealing with these states. In March 2002, the administration proposed a new foreign aid program called the Millennium Challenge Accounts. This is an incentive-based approach to foreign aid: make sure that aid is used effectively by giving it only to governments that can demonstrate a record of good governance.
