Does Aid Cause Growth? - RES 2013

Does Aid Cause Growth? - RES 2013

Every year billions of dollars in aid go to the world’s poorest countries. But does it help these countries to grow out of poverty? The question is as old as foreign aid itself. Here Michael Clemens of the Centre for Global Development presents award-winning research that offers a new way of answering this question. 

The research, co-authored with Steven Radelet, Rhikil Bhavnani and Samuel Bazzi, received the 2012 Royal Economic Society Prize for the best non-solicited paper published in The Economic Journal. More details

The award was presented at the Royal Economic Society annual conference in April 2013.
