Abstract
This research paper analyzes the effects of United States aid on the economic growth of Pakistan. The study uses annual data of last ten year for the period 2002-2012. The research study is conduct to check weather united state aid has any impact of positive or negative on Pakistan economy. This hypothesis was tested using panel data series through finance/Statics software SPSS. The role of US aid in promoting economic growth is a debatable issue and remains unsettled at both theoretical and empirical levels because some independent variables having positive beta and only three independent variables have negative beta. Pakistan has received a substantial amount of US aid since its Independence in 1947 but little improvement has been observed in its socio-economic development. The results show negative and insignificant effects of United States aid on the growth at the aggregate as well at the disaggregate level. The findings suggest that domestic investment, export growth, and inflows of foreign direct investment are important contributors in enhancing economic growth in Pakistan. While the findings further suggests that, the results of this study also indicate that foreign aid has mixed effects on economic growth in developing countries like Pakistan.
