Top 10 Nations of Foreign Aid Recipients

According to the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), and the World Bank, the top ten nations of foreign aid recipients are: Iraq, Afghanistan, Ethiopia, Palestine administration, Vietnam, Sudan, Tanzania, India, Bangladesh, and Turkey. Since Afghanistan and Iraq are directly in a state of occupational war with the United States, and are subsequently provided with re-construction aid by the United States, this would make Ethiopia the highest non-war aid recipient country. Interestingly enough, economics Professor Dambisa Moyo states that 97 percent of the Ethiopian government's budget is attributed to foreign aid (2009, Moyo, Ferguson, p. 72).  Mayo believes this shows the Ethiopian governments, "lack of innovation." She goes on to add that "There is a lack of any effort being paid to try and wean the country off of aid." (April 13, 2009, Dead Aid, Dambisa Moyo)

  1. I don't understand, I thought Ethiopia's economy is growing by 11% according to the government's report.

  2. Well, where there is no opposition to expose, a government can say whatever they like. Sometime ago, when the Ethiopian opposition leader questioned Meles Zenawi, he was threatened by Meles in a Parliament, then the opposition leader was scared of getting killed so he stopped asking questions about Ethiopia's economy. Where there is no democracy and access to information, the government can say what they want, that's the nature of African regimes.
