Food aid doing harm?

Food aid doing harm? | Inclusive Business and Impact Investing | Scoop.it

A new working paper by researchers including Yale assistant economics professor Nancy Qian has found evidence that American food aid to developing countries may hurt those countries more than it helps.

 

Qian described the unintended consequences as potentially devastating, by spurring conflict between ethnic groups and exacerbating pre-existing strife. The paper also found that the amount of U.S. grain sent abroad depended more on domestic levels of grain production than on the actual need by the recipient countries.
