The paper relates that farm aid has effectively wiped out local farmers in developing countries that have opened their borders to imports. The paper then looks at how outsourcing jobs to poor countries harms these countries' economies. The paper examines the arguments in favor of these policies but supports the assertion that such policies are not a solution to global poverty.

From the Paper:

"In the past few years, foreign relations and related debates involving the application of foreign policies have emerged as a growing concern among federal agencies, foreign governments, and the common taxpayer alike. Out of these debates, foreign aid policy and the affects on world poverty have received the most scrutiny as this issue has several pros and cons on each side. The Farm Bill of 2001 and its upcoming amendments have had a significant affect on the manner in which poorer countries receive aid from richer countries. Although intended to aid poorer countries, the farm bill policies have been detrimental to the real interests of poorer nations, and have contributed to the problem of global poverty."
