You have just been appointed to be a U.S. Foreign Service Officer (FSO), employed by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). Your first assignment is working overseas in an embassy where you may give out millions of dollars in foreign aid loans to an important nation. This nation has two types of loans from the United States government. Type I loans for $2,000,000,000 and Type II loans for $34,000,000,000. Type I loans are listed by country in congressional reports, while Type II loans are buried in one line with other country’s repayments and defaults. If the U.S. Congress is clearly informed of a loan default, it will not give out any new loans to that country. The U.S. Ambassador knows that this country is going to default on all loans to the United States government. However, if the country makes a small payment of $1,000,000 on the Type I loan, the U.S. Congressional report will appear as if the country is in good financial condition. This will make him look good. You have been instructed by the Ambassador to set up an appointment with the Minister of Finance. During the meeting, you are told to tell the Minister to make the $1,000,000 payment on schedule for the Type I loan. If the nation does make the payment the U.S. Embassy will request another $30,000,000,000 appropriation from the U.S. Congress, which the Ambassador knows he can receive. The Ambassador believes he will be appointed the next U.S. Secretary of State if this plan is accomplished.
