But scholars and government officials continue to debate why countries provide it: some claim that it is primarily a tool of diplomacy, some argue that it is largely intended to support development in poor countries, and still others point out its myriad newer uses.   In his book Aid on the edge of chaos Ben Ramalingam calls for a middle way. Modern development cooperation has fundamental deficiencies, but it can be reformed.
