Abstract : The report discusses a possibly important effect of external penetration into a nations affairs. Although the nation is not involved in any external war or other physical struggle, externally supplied flows of resources may represent intervention and induce unstable response in the form of mass political turmoil and violence. Thus American foreign aid, both developmental and military, may have unintended and interventionist effects. Data have been assembled from several U.S. government sources and analyzed by several alternate approaches that may result in differing models, based on both linear and non-linear methods. An effort is made to determine more general modelling strategies for similar inferential problems.
