We revisit this topic and allow for donor- as well asrecipient-specific effects in our analysis. In addition to comments on the statistical significance of our resultswe assess the relative economic importance of recipient need, merit, and donor self-interest. Our resultsindicate that all bilateral donors allocate aid according to their self-interest and recipient need. However,most bilateral donors seem to place little importance on recipient merit. Less than 1% of the variance of aidis accounted for by merit,ceteris paribus. The UK and Japan are exceptions: they allocate more aid tocountries with higher growth, higher democracy scores, and fewer human rights abuses.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:creator>Hoeffler, Anke</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Outram, Verity</dc:contributor> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2019-03-25T10:59:46Z</dcterms:available> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2019-03-25T10:59:46Z</dc:date> <dc:contributor>Hoeffler, Anke</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Outram, Verity</dc:creator> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
