10th December 2017

It notes that whilst in absolute terms, the US gives the most of the £140bn, in relative terms, it's 0.17% of national income is a paltry sum and far less than other rich countries. And aid from that source isn't likely to increase any time soon. A useful primer when teaching the economics of aid as part of the A-level course.
