|Abstract||Foreign aid’s effectiveness in promoting economic growth remains mired in
controversy.We examine the impact of the volatility of aid on economic growth,
controlling for the level of aid. A four-year panel analysis is conducted encompassing
155 countries over the period 1966-2001. We find that once the volatility of aid is
controlled for, aid has a positive impact on economic growth. Correspondingly,
volatility of aid flows is found to be negatively related to growth. We found no
significant link between investment and foreign aid, but a positive correlation between
aid and consumption and a negative link between aid volatility and consumption. But
our results also indicate that aid has become a source of volatility rather than insuring
against it, and in that way may have become inimical to economic growth.
Key Words: foreign aid, volatility, economic growth
