Introduction

Research Assignment Research Question: Does international aid cause more problems than it solves? Hypothesis: The countries that receive international aid have seen an increase in their GDP over the last 20 years International aid is described as 'a voluntary transfer of resources from one country to another, given at least partly with the objective of benefiting the recipient country'1 Aid divides it self into Official aid and Voluntary aid, Official aid is a paid aid, by donor countries, which is given to the government of the recipient country so that they can distribute it. So the Official aid has Multilateral and Bilateral aid, The Multilateral aid, id when richer countries give money international organizations but this is made by the indirectly part, so the money is given to the World Bank or organizations like that. While the Bilateral aid, is like I said before for the official aid, government to government, so it is more directly than the other type of aid. Voluntary aid is when it is given by independent organizations; these organizations raise the money and donate it to the private organizations. Some countries need aid, either because natural hazards, or wars also because people are poor and they need the money. So there are lots of countries that are in debt, but maybe the country will start taking the money and become dependant of it, like the people might need the money and if it do not have the money, then the people will die. ...read more.

see in the APENDIX B, it receives a lot more of aid than Rwanda, this is because it may have more countries that want to help Mozambique to stand out. As we can see in the APENDIX A, the biggest amount of aid that they have received is of 451.56, when they had 11.229 of GDP, while in APENDIX B, we can see that the biggest amount of aid received is of 1 661.03, and the GDP is of 8.683. So Mozambique receives more aid than Rwanda, even though Rwanda has had more genocides and problems that Mozambique. Another fact is that as it is shown in APENDIX A, that the GDP of Rwanda is now of 11.229, which is a lot compared to -47.443 which is the smallest number so this country have had an increase of GDP over the last 20 years, as well as the amount of aid has increased too. In addition we can see in APENDIX B that the GDP of Mozambique 20 years ago was of -5.231 and now it is of 14.78, it is an increase, this may relate with the amount of aid received, because as the GDP increases, the aid increases also. But, as we see in newspapers and publications, sometime aid causes a lot of problems, because some countries, might get 'addict' to the aid given. ...read more.
