    Rich nations said to exaggerate aid figures

    Rich nations said to exaggerate aid figures
    Saturday 28-05-2005

    By Khalid Hasan

    Washington: The world’s richest nations greatly exaggerate their aid to poor countries, the US being the worst offender, giving only 0.02 percent of its income in real assistance, according to a study released on Friday by ActionAid International.

    ... In total, says the study, at least 61 percent of all donor assistance from G7 nations is phantom aid, with real aid in 2003 accounting for just $27 billion, or only 0.1 percent of combined donor income. Nearly 90 percent of all contributions coming from the United States and France are considered phantom aid.

    ... According to ActionAid, every day, 800 million people go to bed hungry, 30,000 children die of preventable disease, 100 million children are denied education, three children a minute die due to unsafe water and sanitation and about 30 children die a minute of hunger.

      I didn't intend to post the topic with that name but instead I had logged on to check something else... not my fault, this message board doesn't have the 'delete' button.

          Well considering the US has gone back on its ODA commitments not to mention decreased its over all aid. Instead it offers commodities or products instead of aid. At that you have to pay for it.
          You can't fix stupid. So might as well troll them!
