The United States provided approximately $35 billion in economic aid to over 140 countries in fiscal year 2014. In the map above the relative size of each country is proportionate to the aid received from the United States and the color of each country indicates GDP per capita.

According to Raul Amoros,

Clearly, not all aid is distributed equally. The question is: Who received the largest slice of the pie from the U.S.? From the map above, the answer is clear: Israel.  

Of the $35 billion of total economic aid distributed, almost a quarter of funds went to five countries. Below are the top 5 recipients of economic aid in 2014.

  • Israel: $3.1 billion

  • Egypt: $1.5 billion

  • Afghanistan: $1.1 billion

  • Jordan: $1.0 billion

  • Pakistan: $933 million

    Would be interesting — enlightening — to see also the percentage of that “aid” that is military.
