Breakdown in Pakistan

This chapter reviews the Oxfam case, where the small grants that were provided in Sindh caused a breakdown of cooperation within self-regarding and other-regarding groups. The chapter presents the development of the main theoretical argument of the entire book and illustrates how the shift in the way self-regarding and other-regarding groups work after receiving help is actually inevitable under the present patterns of aid disbursement.
