NPR Examines Why U.S. Ranks Near Bottom Of CGD’s Commitment To Development Index

NPR: Why The U.S. Ranks At The Bottom In A Foreign Aid Index
“…According to an annual index released Tuesday by the Center for Global Development that ranks 27 of the world’s wealthiest countries, the U.S. scored dead last on foreign aid contributions and quality — despite being the largest donor in dollar amount. … Not only that, but by the measures of the index, American aid is also poor quality. … On the other hand, American aid given through international organizations like the World Bank or Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria scored relatively high for quality…” (Lu, 9/18).
