The Foreign Aid Paradox (2014)

Produced and Directed by: Heidi Ewing and Rachel Grady

Why does the U.S. fund foreign aid?
The U.S. spends approximately $37 billion dollars a year on foreign aid - just under 1% of our federal budget. THE FOREIGN AID PARADOX zeroes in on food aid to Haiti and how it affects American farming and shipping interests as well as Haiti's own agricultural markets. The result: a surprising study in unintended consequences.
