THE FOREIGN AID PARADOX
DIRECTED BY RACHEL GRADY & HEIDI EWING
WHAT IS THE ROLE OF OUR GOVERNMENT?
The United States spends approximately $37 billion dollars a year on foreign aid — just under 1% of our federal budget. "The Foreign Aid Paradox" zeroes in on food aid to Haiti and how it affects American farming and shipping interests as well as Haiti’s own agricultural markets. The result: a surprising study in unintended consequences.
