Exciting paper from CGD on a 'collaborative market' for aid.

One particularly interesting idea is that:
Aid institutions are in a kind of political equilibrium balancing the interests of donors and recipients. Reform efforts that simply move away from equilibrium will not be implemented or sustained, and may do more harm than good. To have effective and sustainable reforms we need to try to change the political equilibrium.

A sharp break (a revolution?) is needed.
