Infographic: U.S. Military Spending Versus Foreign Aid

Posted on July 30, 2012

 Good media platform published this infographic that portrays U.S. spending on defense and development aide in comparison to other countries. Data is from 2010 and before the recent publication of the new Defense Strategic Guidance and new budget priorities.

Development assistance spending and military spending appear to promote two contradictory sets of values: one that builds and one that dismantles. Where do you think the U.S. government allocates more of its funding?
