Foreign aid is a luxury we can"t afford.

Con

Please define what you understand under afford, and what country you are talking about.

The argument that we cannot afford Foreign aid is not true for most Western Countries. Many countries can indeed afford it, and no one is pressuring countries into foreign aid. Obviously, if an LEDC is struggling it cannot afford in foreign aid. Foreign aid helped a lot of countries that were doomed, per example post world war one and two, to rise again and be leading economies. With them being stable again they can export and import and give back to the foreign aiding country. We do not live in a zero-sum world anymore; if we help LEDCs we do not only make their country develop, but we develop all of the world.

Therefore foreign aid is affordable by many countries and countries should pursue foreign aid.

A luxury? If this debate had a little more substance I would be interested in accepting it.
