The Determinants of Aid in the Post-Cold War Era

No 06-14 Classification- JEL: F35, Working Papers from Department of Economics, West Virginia University

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 control for the political, strategic, and other considerations of donors with fixed effects. In general, we find that aid and per capita income were negatively related, while aid was positively related with infant mortality, rights, and government effectiveness.
