While it is well understood that industrialized countries use aid to grantpolitical favors, little research covers alternative channels such as trade policytowards developing countries. We analyze eligibility investigations and revokingof U.S. Generalized System of Preferences (GSP) benefits to see whetherpolitical friends of the U.S. receive favorable treatment. While countries politicallyaligned with the U.S. are equally likely to be investigated, they aresignificantly less likely to have their benefits suspended.
