The determinants of aid in the post-cold war era

Subhayu Bandyopadhyay () and Howard Wall ()

No 2006-021, Working Papers from Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis

Abstract: This paper estimates the responsiveness of aid to recipient countries’ economic and physical needs, civil/political rights, and government effectiveness. We look exclusively at the post-Cold War era and use fixed effects to control for the political, strategic, and other considerations of donors. We find that aid and per capita income have been negatively related, while aid has been positively related to infant mortality, rights, and government effectiveness.
