    I recently did some looking in to what different regional development banks invest in, and it was quite noticeable that while most of them invest in infrastructure and financial services, the Inter-American Development Bank invests heavily in social protection and education. Maybe this is also an indicator of the different approaches to development.

    But is the difference in philosophy just because of a difference in need? Does poverty take priority over politics (rightly or wrongly) when poverty is worse?
