Questions You Should be Asking the World Around You
HDI is a set of prerequisites that rank countries on a scale, based on how good it is to live there. These prerequisites include education, life expectancy, and income, etc. A country that ranks high on the HDI scale will generally have people who are happy. A country that ranks low on the HDI scale would mean that there are things to be fixed, and money is used to fix it.
Israel and the US are in negotiations for foreign aid this week. An increase of 700mil USD per year is expected. But does Israel really need foreign aid?
Take a look at this list of foreign aid recipients. Their corresponding HDI’s are shown on the left.
The ratio of economic aid to military aid to Israel was altered in 2007, so that now Israel only receives aid in the form of bombs and guns. (Maybe nuclear). We’ll get more into that later. For now, just scan the HDI indexes and ask why is Israel a recipient of 3 billion USD annually, when countries like Iraq, Haiti, Somalia and Gaza have lower HDI’s.
70% of the aid Israel receives is spent on Arms purchases back from the US. So in a money laundering context, “free shit.”
