UN Official Backs Down: Rich Nations Not 'Stingy'
I feel so much better. There's nothing more important to me than how some UN weenie regards America. Of course, the weenie said he had been "misinterpreted." The article says the US gives 0.13 percent of its GDP for development aid - whatever that means. It's probably too much. My guess is that most of it lines the pockets of corrupt government officials (of the countries receiving aid). The Hudson Institute has a nice summation of the generosity of Americans. Suffice it to say, we give a lot more to private organizations delivering aid than we do through the government. We're not only generous, we're smart.
