Rob from the Poor and Give to the Rich <- Douglas Casey

11 Jan

The hundreds of billions wasted on foreign aid go straight into the pockets of the tyrants

That’s where all the foreign aid (which might be defined as a transfer from poor people in rich countries to rich people in poor countries) went as well.

The U.S. government still squanders about $20 billion a year this way, and European governments spend proportionally even more; it’s all gone straight down a giant rathole.
