The Impact of Aid on Growth Revisited: Do Donor Motives Matter?

Author(s)

Christopher Kilby, Axel Dreher

The typical identification strategy in aid effectiveness studies assumes that donor motives do not influence the impact of aid on growth. We call this homogeneity assumption into question, constructing a model in which donor motives matter and testing the assumption empirically. Replication data available upon request from the author.
