Comparing America's Foreign Aid Generosity

NPR's Mike Pesca examines how the amount of relief aid pledged by the United States to South Asian countries in the wake of the tsunami disaster compares to what other countries have offered. After a United Nation official complained this week about the generosity of the richest countries of the world, United States officials countered that no single nation gives more than America.
