Aid organisations hit out at Bush budget [Financial Times]

February 6, 2006

Research fellow Stewart Patrick is quoted in this Financial Times article about the 2007 United States budget proposal investigates the concerns over what implications the budget holds for development assistance in the next year.

"It's striking how little of the foreign assistance goes to fighting global poverty," he commented.
