Abstract : After nearly 50 years of U.S. spending on foreign aid, the purposes and worth of that spending remain issues of debate in the Congress. Financial assistance may be given for strategic political, economic, or even cultural reasons. This study focuses on aid that is given to promote economic growth and improve human welfare in the developing countries of Asia, Africa, and Latin America.
