Money and Power by Sarah Bracking
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


-- Examines why southern states are still experiencing mass poverty after over sixty years of 'development' -- Sarah Bracking explores the role of governments and development finance institutions in managing the markets in which the poorest countries operate. These institutions -- the 'Great Predators' -- are trapping the populations of the south in a permanent cycle of austerity. Bracking examines the political economy relations between states. She shows how pseudo-public 'development' institutions retain complete economic control over Southern markets, yet the international system is itself unregulated. Operating in the interests of North America and the European Union, they have a political purpose, and yet serve to cloud the brute power relations between states. This book will be of interest to anyone studying debt and development, global financial institutions, and the way the world economy is regulated and governed.
