Considering how big your country is, I think it's fair. Denmark gives the most, size considered.   
   
I don't know if that made sense...

The US is 1st in foreign aid in only absolute terms.
But the US is 19th by GDP percentage given to foreign aid, with Sweden in 1st.
American gives more because it has more, not because they're more generous.

That's like saying China got the most homeless. Of cause they have the most homeless, they're like the second biggest country in the world or something like that. If you look which country gives the most money to charity compared to how much they earn, USA won't even be in the top 10.

How much money do each of those actually equate to though? The U.S. COULD be donating more cash than others but not as high of a percent of their whole income. I'd try to figure it out but when I try maths the numbers get all backwardsy in my head and I get confused.

Yeah I try to think of both sides when I see stuff like that since lots of news and stuff like that try to skew the point of view to their favor. I have heard the U.S. donates most and also donates very little so I can't really share my opinion either way. I'd try to do the math like I said but I get kinda dyslexic with numbers after so long.

you forget that this is only for development assistance i.s. roads, schools, hospitals, other stuff needed to make the country more advanced and well functioning. i don't know but i would guess that the US simply puts more money in food and immediate assistance instead of making the conditions better. while i think that making the base conditions better should be better, i realize that that is pointless if they are all dead of starvation by the time it's fixed.

And they'll just live off of our donations, right? Are they ever going to gain the resources for the ability to make it themselves? For a proper trade they must give us something in return, otherwise, who the hell is going to want to dedicate their entire workload for nothing in return? It's not as simple as "Just give them some free stuff, they'll manage on their own". Blistering hot and dry desert, poor nutrient soil, only a section of Africa has decent rainfall and flora, but if they destroy that to make crops then they've destroyed just that; a large tropical rainforest, and ultimately make more problems of the world. Not all of the world leaders are sleezy money grubbing assholes (still, too large of a portion though), if that were an option then they would have done it.

how about your country making agricultural subventions. To provide a certain safety for your farmers the price of corn and wheat is kept under its real price. This results in small farmers in less whealty countries which cannot afford such actions not being able to even be concurizable on their own markets when there is subventioned corn/wheat from the USA/EU. the world produces more than enough food, even africa could easily feed its own people. The problem here is the distribution and again actions of certain nations, interfering with the market. The last problem is that food is traded on global stock markets. So every year, nearly a third of the worldwide production of basic food is rotting away in silos, because its just meant to be traded, not consumed.

I could go on, but i guess you see, that its not that easy (as always).

you get screwed too, or who do you think pays for those subventions? Thats hell lot of taxmoney spent which in the end results in "who has more money". I live in the country spending most on this subventions (CH). Our farmer don't need to do ****, because you get about 50'000$ per year for a 20ha farm (Yeah, thats small) for free. Problem: They will plant the same **** every year, without even worring, if its needed. This results in millions of liters of milk which gets thrown away every year, because we produce too much.

And I live in the city. All I know is that locally farmed, unsubsidized food costs a **** ton more. My university this year decided to switch to local foods. Our portion sizes were halved so that the cost wasn't doubled.

but only the unhealthy stuff gets subventionized (corn, soja and wheat). Vegetables do not get subventions. You get healthcare now in the usa, so again you will pay for all the diabetes patients who got sick because they just eat the cheapest food, full of corn syrup, sugar and wheat for whose low market prices you payed before with your taxes.

The thing is, we send tons of food to starving countries already, but their local governments are so corrupt that hardly anything makes it to the people, which leaves us with a huge decision. Do we keep doing the same and letting much of the effort go to waste, cease efforts altogether, or act as a nanny-state and attempt to realign their government?

Studies have shown that African nations grow enough food to feed everyone, but it is an issue of distribution and affordability. We as Westerners, not just Americans, inflate their economies with foreign aid, inflating their money to where it is practically worthless. So they starve more and we send them more money and ensure that they do starve. There is a reason there was not nearly as much starvation before colonialism. They didn't suddenly lose the ability to grow food; it is a policy issue, not an environmental one.

What's worse, in where the areas are struck with the worse poverty and famine, the regimes controlling said country take a huge cut of the aid for themselves. Some Kenyan reporter advocated to stop aid in the form of handouts.
