Economic Progress

These countries give the most aid - and are the most principled about it

Soldiers from the South Korean army make efforts to remove crude oil spills over Mallipo swimming beach after after an accident involving Hong-Kong registered oil tanker Hebei Spirit in Taean, about 170km (106 miles) southwest of Seoul, December 10, 2007. South Korea on Monday was tallying the environmental and economic cost of the worst oil spill in its history as thousands of workers struggled to protect an area known for its nature reserve and vibrant marine economy.
