Three Prevailing Views on Aid
What are your views on the relationship between aid and growth?
China’s Aid to Africa
Overview of China's Aid to Africa
Early Impact Aid Boosts Growth
Mariele Del Villar
The Type of Aid Matters
Aid has No Effect on Growth, and May Actually Undermine Growth.
Aid has a Positive Relationship with Growth on Average(Although not in Every Country), but with Diminishing Returns.
Aid has a Conditional Relationship with Growth, Helping to Accelerate Growth Only Under Certain Circumstances.
Help Africa achieve better development
Create access to Africa’s :
1. Aid for disasters, emergencies, and humanitarian efforts and/or food aid.
2. Aid that might affect growth, but indirectly and over a long period of time.
3. Aid aimed more directly to support growth relatively quickly.
Estimate the model over a four year period.
Factors included growth, possible endogeneity & lags
Positive impact on growth
Does not work everywhere
Large amounts diminish returns
Mean = 2.7% of GDP
1% increase in impact aid produces an additional 0.31 percent annual growth
Effects of Early Impact Aid
Countries with Good Policies
Corruption, rule of law, risk of expropriation or repudiation of contracts & bureaucratic quality.
Relationship between early impact aid and growth is strong.
Countries with higher life expectancy
Aid does not only work in these countries.
Limits to Early Impact Aid
Some counties can absorb more, others less
Aid capacity depends on institution and general health
Strong institutions and higher life expectancy can absorb more
Aid can either undermine or boost growth
Impact of aid is the strongest at early stage
However, early impact aid is limited to institution and life expectancy
Overall, average aid has boosted growth
Not Only in Good Institutions
But in Other Situations
eg: South Korea
Less strong institutions(Still work)
eg: Mozambique &Uganda,
eg: Smallpox, River blindness, Polio, ect…

its goal and nature.
China’s selfish quest
