U.S. Aid: Does it Really Help?
The purpose of this research is to generate an insightful study of the effectiveness of U.S. aid on Mozambique's developing economy. Over the past 30 years, the U.S. , along with numerous other multilateral and bilateral organizations, has given large amounts of development assistance to Mozambique and, in the same duration, the country has seen tremendous economic improvement. Thus, this study aims to detennine the exact nature of the relationship between U.S. aid and per capita GDP from 1981-2007 for both Mozambique and a panel of African countries. According to prior studies, aggregate development assistance has greatly benefited Mozambique's economy and is a proven factor of economic growth for developing countries. This research, while showing a positive correlation between total official development assistance and growth, proves the effect of U.S. aid contributions to be insignificant.
