The United States greatly increases aid to countries when they sit as non-permanent members on the Security Council. Why?
- Perhaps the United States is bribing non-permanent members for their votes.
- Perhaps the United States is buying good will in hopes the non-permanent members will fall in line.
- Perhaps aid increases because being on the Security Council makes their concerns more salient to the United States.
- Perhaps being more internationally involved both increases aid and the likelihood of sitting on the Security Council.
