In Terms Of Foreign Aid, U.S. Is Most Generous Nation

Foreign Policy: America Is Not The Grinch
John Norris, executive director of the Sustainable Security and Peacebuilding Initiative at the Center for American Progress

“All told, more than $200 billion from the United States flows into the developing world each year. … Now consider that the United States has more than doubled its aid to sub-Saharan Africa over the last decade, made massive U.S. investments in PEPFAR and the Global Fund that have led to a historic turnaround in the HIV/AIDS crisis, and has long been the most generous donor in responding to humanitarian crises around the globe. … Perhaps the idea that the United States has been a steady, consistent, and largely responsible development investor is something that isn’t easy for anyone to get their head around. But a Grinch it most assuredly is not.” (12/24).
