Much more is needed to significantly improve the world distribution of income. The second conclusion is that redistribution is well targeted to poor countries. Comparing assistance given in 2002 with that given in 1985, when much assistance was given for geopolitical reasons, you see that end of the Cold War improved the targeting of official development assistance.
