In this two-minute short film from 2006, Steve Radelet, former CGD senior fellow, explains how CGD has contributed to the Millennium Challenge Account (MCA)—a U.S. aid program focusing on effectiveness, economic growth, and poverty alleviation. Ken Hackett, a Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) board member explains how CGD has been involved with the account since its creation in 2002.
