U.S. Foreign Aid Summary
by Vaughn Aubuchon

HERE is a summary chart of United States Foreign Aid payments. Data is listed by major recipients, for the ten years from 2001 to 2010.

It has become more difficult to get more recent data, since the FAS stopped presenting their analysis in 2006. Ever since, it is necessary to go to the source data from the US State Department. The State Department is not consistant year-by-year in its data presentation. Entities change, departments change, and file names change. Each year presents a new puzzle, as to how to find the data.

Perhaps, this is the reason that the FAS abandoned their oversight summary. Below, the sources are given for all the data on the page.

     Notes

  Israel

-

One-third of ALL
US AID goes to
Israel and Egypt.
 
  
These 2 countries
receive one-third of
the total aid,
the majority of which
pays for armaments.
 Yet, neither is a
"developing" country.

The Complaints About Foreign Aid
Foreign Aid Purpose:
To create foreign markets for US products, esp. arms sales.
1. Foreign aid aids the giver, not the recipient.
2. Corruption is a major problem - many funds go to private bank accounts.
- - - The leaders get the money, the people get nothing.
3. Richer nations receive the most aid.

Foreign Aid Determinants:
1. Strategic considerations (Egypt, Jordan, Iraq, Afghanistan)
2. Former colonial status (Africa)
3. Political alignment (Middle East)
4. Drug policy (South America)

Foreign Aid NON-determinants:
Need - The poorest nations receive the least aid.
U.N. Voting Record - Doesn't count, if you can't do anything for the US.

Sources

There are 2 main sources of US Foreign Aid -
1. The US Department of State, and
2. USAID - the U.S. Agency for International Development

The Federation of American Scientists, (Washington, DC)

From year to year, one must be diligent in seeking and finding the appropriate/ applicable data. As descriptions, the filenames are useless.


Sources of error -
1. Numbers for one parameter may be different in another document
. Each parameter goes through several "stages" -
Requested, Estimated, Actual and Revised (Actual plus Supplemental)
The report for each year contains 3 figures -
1. The Requested $$$ for the current year
2. The Estimated $$$ for the last year, and
3. The Actual $$$ for the year before last.
One must therefore be careful when comparing figures. No numbers are firm, until they become ancient history.

USAID or the U.S. Agency for International Development, offers tens of thousands of results for any search for non-military aid.
