All aid is economic driven. In the past the banks gave aid in return for economic control of developing countries (IMF). It is a process that maybe beyond the understanding of the average person. Money is given out but in return American corporations are paid by that same money to aid in development.
The aid being given now by ordinary citizens is mostly through peoples good will but it is filtered through aid organizations which means Americans are being put to work one way or another. Materials are bought with that money which boosts manufacturing, etc. Imagine the scale of re-development that will take place. The money will return right back into US banks The bottom line is any kind of war and disaster is good for the economy.
My response --
There is a book out written by a man from the east coast titled "The confessions of an economic hitman". He says he was part of a scheme to take control of third world countries through the lending of money from the I.M.F. to these contries to build infrastuctures such as dams to provide power,and roads.However,they Inflated the numbers concerning those countries ability to be able to payback those loans on purpose,in order to use that as leverage in forcing those countries into giving up their countries natural resources,and land ,to The I.M.F.In fact the money that was lent to those countries was used to employ the services of the very people who had a vested interest in getting the money those loans provided.The company this economic hitman worked for claimed to be a construction company,when in fact they didn't even own any construction equipment.They simply outsourced the work to American construction companies,with whom they were working.He admits that he was instrumental in setting up these countries in conjuction with the full knowledge and consent of the I.M.F.in order to gain some economic control over them.The projects they worked on helped only a few of the wealthy rulers and their friends,and caused many poor native people to lose their homes due to dam construction and the like.They weren't trying to help these people ,they were only interested in helping themselves.They are just using money instead of bullets to subjugate these people.If,that doesn't work,then they use the bullets.On,their leader,who doesn't want to coperate.Like they tried to do with fidel Castro in Cuba.
