http://www.wto.org/ 18.07.11 The Aid for Trade initiative supports developing countries' efforts to increase their participation in the global economy. Aid for Trade projects on the ground are designed to develop infrastructure and foster know-how, thereby boosting trade capacity. How can we assess the effectiveness of Aid for Trade measures in helping developing countries to achieve their development goals? Mario Roger Hernández, Vice-Minister of Economy of El Salvador, and Peter Thompson, Director of the Directorate for Development and Economic Partnership Agreements (EPAs) within the Trade Directorate of the European Commission, discuss this issue with Keith Rockwell, WTO Spokesman.

What is foreign aid? How much foreign aid does the United States distribute each year. Comparatively, not much. In fact, foreign aid only accounts for a small fraction of most nations' overall spending. But it's hugely important. Foreign aid improves healthcare, can promote economic growth, and assists people who've been through disasters. Remittances are moneys that are sent internationally by immigrants.

She theorizes that such financial contributions allow African governments to be dependent on other world powers. ----- During the past fifty years, more than $1 trillion in development-related aid has been transferred from rich countries to Africa. Dambisa Moyo asserts, however, that this assistance has made African people no better off. "Africa's real per capita income today is lower than in the 1970s, with over half of the 700 million Africans living on less than a dollar a day." Eschewing the "glamour aid" of celebrities s...

What is globalization? Is globalization a good thing or not. Well, I have an answer that may not surprise you: It's complicated. This week, Jacob and Adriene will argue that globalization is, in aggregate, good. Free trade and globalization tend to provide an overall benefit, and raises average incomes across the globe. The downside is that it isn't good for every individual in the system. In some countries, manufacturing jobs move to places where labor costs are lower. And some countries that receive the influx of jobs aren't prepared to deal with it, from a regulatory standpoint. Anyway, Jacob and Adriene can explain the whole thing to you in 10 minutes. *** Crash Course is on Patreon!
