The Brookings Cafeteria

Oct 13, 2017

In the second part of a two-part series on challenges facing U.S. foreign assistance, experts from the global development community discuss the importance of the private sector in aid financing, measuring aid effectiveness, foreign assistance success stories, and more. These experts, including Brookings Senior Fellow Homi Kharas, were some of the members of the 14th annual Brookings-Blum Roundtable.

Also in this episode, Molly Reynolds, a fellow in the Governance Studies program, analyzes Senator Bob Corker’s (R-Tenn.) critique of President Trump and the relationship between congressional Republicans and the White House in our regular “What’s Happening in Congress” segment.
