Are you ever confused as to what exactly all these politicians mean when they talk about foreign aid?
Do you know the difference between foreign aid and development assistance? Do politicians?
Would you be surprised (yes, most of you would) to learn that the U.S. spends only about one percent of the federal budget on foreign aid?
Well, Oxfam is here to help. They’ve put out this nifty little guide online called Foreign Aid 101.
Oxfam is an advocacy group and thinks we need to spend more on foreign aid. But their guide seems pretty balanced and factual rather than a position paper.
Basically, foreign aid is like an onion.
