Better use for money

Reader comment on item: Who Gets the Most U.S. Foreign Aid?

Submitted by David W. Lincoln (Canada), Jul 25, 2013 at 13:20

Daniel, i hope you would not be surprised to see me come out in favour of phasing out foreign aid, and all ways that distort trade, so that we have a better display of capitalism - than what is currently the case.

Plus, when you take a look at aid from the US, that is directed to Israel, how many strings are attached to it, so that the only recipients are American companies.

The power of ideas, and of what Martin Buber wrote - they have more currency than throwing money around.

Are we agreed on this?

Thank you.
