I still don't understand how you Europeans think percentages matter. The anon is right, you guys are 100% using loop holes to try to make yourselves feel better. No matter how you look at it, the US donated twice as much as second place. Let's say I plan on moving out when I graduate college. My not so rich grandmother gives me 500 dollars to help out while my rich grandfather on the other side of the family gives me 20,000 dollars. Sure, I understand that it took a bigger hit for my grandmother to give me the 500 than it was for my grandfather to give me 20,000, but in the end that 20,000 is multiple times more helpful than the 500. I don't understand how this is complicated.

aids don't fall out of the sky. they are compensation for damages done to these countries due to wars, invasions, slave trade etc. obviously the USA have been more destructive than other countries, therefore they should give more - way more - than they are currently giving
User avatar #99 - clannadqs (02/23/2015) [-]
Let's play a game. Answer these quick questions.
1. What continent has seen the most wars?
2. What continent has caused the most destruction in the past century?
3. What continent was the one who basically started the more modern slave trade?
4. What continent accepted a shit ton of money from the US to get back on their feet after WWII, then goes back to bitching every fucking day about minute issues that they themselves support as well?
User avatar #100 - discobleach (02/23/2015) [-]
1. Europe, but it was on their own soil
2. Europe, but they have made amends and tried to rebuild more democratic countries with more social justice and less economic inequality, which America hasn't done
3. Europe, but why does it matter? we all originally come from africa, so blame the africans?
4. America were willing to give that money in order to exert power over those countries during the cold war. it wsn't fucking generosity.

America is constantly trying to control other countries by means of influence from private corporations or by putting puppets in power; their indirect economical control of several countries is blatant and despicable

they're giving crumbs of their gdp to appear generous but in fact they are taking way more than they give

thank you for reading
User avatar #101 - clannadqs (02/23/2015) [-]
Pretty sure there is entire classes in college regarding how Europe spread to other continents and fucked up other nations.

Oh, here is a little tip. The majority of our military funding should be counted for foreign aid because of how fucking pathetic our allies are. Good job on donating half of what the US has in regards to foreign aid while we spend hundreds of billions more than you on our military to protect your sorry asses from Russia and actually get involved with ISIS and other terrorists while your pathetic ass nation sends a few vehicles over to Iraq/Afghanistan to "support". Which means they all just sit on the FOB and do absolutely nothing.

I don't even need to reply. that is absolutely moronic. if you think america's military endeavors have any humanitarian purpose whatsoever you're delusional.
User avatar #104 - clannadqs (02/23/2015) [-]
"Aid may serve one or more functions: it may be given as a signal of diplomatic approval, or to strengthen a military ally, to reward a government for behaviour desired by the donor, to extend the donor's cultural influence, to provide infrastructure needed by the donor for resource extraction from the recipient country, or to gain other kinds of commercial access. Humanitarian and altrustic purposes are at least partly responsible for the giving of aid."

So now aid is simply humanitarian in nature? How fucking stupid are you?

United States – $31.55 billion
United Kingdom – $17.88 billion
Germany – $14.06 billion
Japan – $11.79 billion
France – $11.38 billion
Sweden – $5.83 billion
Norway – $5.58 billion
Netherlands – $5.44 billion
Canada – $4.91 billion
Australia – $4.85 billion

Given that the US has a population of 320 million, and a GDP of some 16,7 trillion, while the next on the list, the UK has a population of 60 million and a GDP of 2,6 trillion, I am not impressed by US generosity.

Also, I believe the joke plays on the average American's lack of knowledge about other countries, not the amount of money spent on upholding African regimes.
User avatar #198 - shadowblaziard (02/23/2015) [-]
I did not expect that we, Netherlands, would contribute more than Canada and Australia. Since we only have a 16,9 million citizens
User avatar #222 - zevran (02/24/2015) [-]
Personally I was surprised by Sweden and Norway, whom have 9,5 and 5 million citizens respectively.
User avatar #226 - shadowblaziard (02/24/2015) [-]
Yes that surprised me too, although their economy is doing better than our own. And they do indeed have less citizins however they are wealthier than we are
User avatar #229 - zevran (02/24/2015) [-]
The economy of the Netherlands is more or less equally strong as that of Sweden in terms of pr capita GDP (both around 55.000$). Norway is significantly stronger than both of course due to the oil wealth, at around 100.000$ pr capita. I don't have the growth numbers.
User avatar #230 - shadowblaziard (02/24/2015) [-]
To be honest I have no clue what GDP means
User avatar #231 - zevran (02/24/2015) [-]
It means Gross Domestic Production, and is an estimation of the value of a nations economic output in a given year. GDP pr capita is that value divided by the nation's population in order to determine the approximate wealth of its citizens.

The pr Capita measurement is mostly used when you try to see how developed a nation is, but it isn't very accurate, since it doesn't show where that wealth is concentrated (the US for example has high pr capita GDP, but the wealth is mostly concentrated within the wealthiest 20% of the population).
User avatar #232 - shadowblaziard (02/24/2015) [-]
Ohhhh now I finally understand, thanks!
#195 - anonexplains (02/23/2015) [-]
Interesting. Japan has half the US populous, and does a little less than half the generous donating. The UK and Germany are about 1/5 and 1/4, respectively, the size and do a bit more than half the generous donating.

I can't help but wonder if the individuals are being more generous, or if it's the rich people that are more generous in the UK and germany.

However, on an individual basis, Americans are quite charitable. Both to other Americans and to foreigners. I agree that foreign aide is a meaningless indicator of how "generous" a country's population is.

User avatar #177 - clannadqs (02/23/2015) [-]
So, by that logic the UK, Jordan, Iraq, and Egypt are only adding ISIS members to the count also. You do realize that this is a coalition effort, right? Anything the US does is more than likely agreed upon by other coalition members. More than likely your nation is involved in that coalition so shut the fuck up. (Assuming you are British since the majority of this website is either American or British and this flamewar seems to be the UK vs. the US).

Have I said those countries are not doing the same? The UK is definatly doing the same thing. that dosn't make it right.

Seeing as you can't double a number, so I'm not surprised you don't understand how statistics work.
#185 - clannadqs (02/23/2015) [-]
Are you serious? That might have been the most stupid thing I've ever seen this entire year. You can double a number that has a base of zero (where zero actually means zero). For example, if your class gave ten Popsicles to a younger class and another class gave five, you in fact gave twice as much. When referring to money you can have zero dollars and that is where you base the entire foundation of counting money on. It seems like you barely paid attention in class and wanted to sound smart and forgot that the only time you can't truly say something is worth twice as much is when referring to something like temperature since 0 degrees is not literally an absence of heat.

TL;DR - You're a pseudo-intellectual who though you could look smart by throwing out something you didn't pay attention to in intro stats.

Let's look at it a different way. Two groups of people are buying two different kids...let's say very expensive toys. Group A consists of 53 people, each with 650 dollars. Group B consists of 10 people, each with 100 dollars. Group A spends a total of 1000 dollars on the toy for their kid, while group B only spends 500 dollars. Each person in group A has spent 34,5 dollars, or about 19% of what they had. Each person in group B has spent 50 dollars, or 50% of what they had.

Claiming that group A is more generous than group B is silly.
User avatar #67 - clannadqs (02/23/2015) [-]
How is that even relevant? Once again it's Europeans trying to make themselves feel better. I'm happy you guys spend a lot on foreign aid, but it doesn't work in percentages. If you live in a poor village and get 1000 crates of medical supplies, food, water, etc from one nation and 5 of each from another nation, even thought latter nation only had 10 of each to give away, it's still nowhere near as helpful as the 1000 crates of each. Same thing can be said if you are a homeless person and a billionaire came by and gave you 5000 in cash and right after someone who doesn't have too much money gave you 100. That 5000 is still miles ahead of the 100 in terms of being helpful.
User avatar #70 - mutzaki (02/23/2015) [-]
It's relevant because it's about generosity, not the total. Sure, The US ends up helping the most out of all countries, simply because you're a very wealthy country with a very large population. Looking at the big picture, though, you realize that it's a deceptive figure.

Don't pat yourself on the back because you're a group of millionaires who spent 20 dollars each on something, when smaller group of people with a more average income spent 30 dollars each. If you don't understand how this matters, I'm afraid you're the delusional one who has to try to make yourself feel better.
User avatar #76 - clannadqs (02/23/2015) [-]
Except how generous you are holds no relevance on how helpful you are to another nation. I don't understand how that is not clear enough. The US gives twice as much, that's not an arbitrary number. There is no other way to look at those numbers. It was you guys who came in here and totally added your own twist on who gives the most foreign aid (which is the US in a landslide) just so you could feel better about yourselves and because Europeans can never accept the fact that the US is better than them in something. What's next, you saying that a nation with a GDP of two dollars giving one dollar should be viewed as more helpful than the US or the UK?
User avatar #79 - mutzaki (02/23/2015) [-]
UK and Germany put together are more helpful than the US.
#141 - hongkonglongdong (02/23/2015) [-]
And Europe as a whole, like in the actual picture, gives insanely more money than the US to other countries. Unlike the US, the EU doesn't have a military, so they extend their power by throwing money at countries to develop their infrastructure and then give Europe preferential trade agreements. It's called the "European dream", or something.

"lol 320 million relatively much wealthier people spent twice as much money than 60 million less wealthy people."

This is only relevant to the arbitrary and pointless question "what country's government sends the most money to foreign aid, due to having many times the resources of countries that still sent half of that?" It directly correlates with the simple fact that you by far have had the bigger opportunity to do so. It's nothing to brag about.

Of course, this is a dead conversation that won't lead anywhere, so I'm not sure why I'm still replying.

Once again that is government aid. Bill Gates donations alone eclipse a number of countries in Europe. We don't force our citizens to pay with high taxes. I believe we call that freedom.
User avatar #86 - mutzaki (02/23/2015) [-]
All right, here's the source, and it's from 2013. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_governments_by_development_aid If you have an issue with Wikipedia, simply look up its provided sources. As you can see, statistics can change a lot in just one year.

Yes, it's government-provided aid, but since it's tax money, it's still very much relevant. You see, we don't have high taxes because our governments force us to, but because we elect to have high taxes. That's how democracies work. In the end, the government just functions as a medium.

On the other hand, I'd be deligthed to see whatever figures you might have in regards to private donations. Unfortunately, the world giving index doesn't take into account sums of money donated, and is based off of unproved claims of people, and I haven't been able to find anything else.

The US has a higher population, as well, though. Higher populations cost more to maintain. I'm not disagreeing with you, but looking at JUST amount donated vs GDP does not include all factors. The US may have less money available than other countries (or at least may not lead by such a large margin) if we factor out how much it has to spend on maintaining its own economy.
