– Some Unsubtle Propositions
Sreenivasan Subramanian - UNU-WIDER, 2007 - Helsinki, Finland

This paper re-asserts the importance of certain old-fashioned questions relating to international aid: what is the quantum of aid available in relation to the need for it?

– A Fresh Look
Jan-Erik Antipin, George Mavrotas - UNU-WIDER, 2006 - Helsinki, Finland

The paper contributes to the empirics of aid and growth by taking a fresh look at the aid-policies-growth nexus emanating from the very influential but also debatable paper on the subject by Burnside and Dollar: ‘Aid, Policies and Growth’. We employ three different datasets (including...
