Evaluating the Concessionality of Tied Aid
AbstractThe failure of aid to have a demonstrably positive impact on recipient growth is partly due to donor aid policies, in particular tying, which can have a number of negative effects on recipients. This problem is especially acute for mixed credits, where a contract is financed through a commercial package with an aid subsidy. This paper develops a simple analytical framework for valuing the grant element in aid and mixed credits, accounting directly for excess prices due to tying and also allowing for the relative benefit of aid versus exports as a source of foreign exchange for developing countries. The empirical usefulness of the approach is demonstrated by valuing the concessionality in British mixed credits over the period 1988-92.
