January Units - Review and Consensus

TRADE AND AID

Remember those definitions that were sent in the November Voter? Bring them to the unit meetings so we are all on the same "track".

Have you read the two Facts and Issues that came with your December Voter?

Development Aid: Images and Realities

The ABC's of International Development

Here are the questions that we will respond to at the second round of units in January. Be prepared to give your opinion!

CONSENSUS QUESTIONS ON DEVELOPMENT AID

  1. What should be the objectives of U.S. development assistance policies?

  2. In view of these objectives and in the context of establishing sound and effective development aid programs, how does your League view the following:

    • Military aid and supporting assistance

    • the blend of multilateral and bilateral Aid

    • the issue of effectiveness and efficiency

    • the ability of the U.S. economy to meet the 1% GNP target

  3. What priority would you assign and how would you evaluate the newer emphases in development: e.g., population planning, expanded agricultural production, social and civic development and education.

  4. In reviewing the League's position on development assistance and trade with the developing countries, does your League wish to delete, change, or shift the emphasis on any specific policy? If sof please specify and give your reasons.
