Discrepancies between principles and practice

Failure to act in conformity with stated principles
Unprincipled action

The development principles and policies espoused by industrialized countries have seldom promised so much, whether through the Earth Summit or the World Bank's "sustained assault on world poverty". Such promises only serve to highlight the widening gap between principles and practice. Despite declared concern for some new world order, the financial policies of industrialized countries continue to increase the gap between the richer and poorer countries, deepening the already abject poverty and environmental degradation in which more than a billion people live.
