Summary
Two-time Pulitzer finalist Jon Jeter reports on the freemarket reforms of the IMF and the World Bank, which in a single generation created a transnational underclass by imbibing a risky cocktail of deindustrialization, privatization, and anti-inflationary monetary policy that have led to the subprime mortgage scandal, the food crisis, and the fraying of traditional social bonds (marriage)
Summary
An analysis of the global economy discusses how free market reforms and policies emphasizing deindustrialization and privatization have led to increased poverty, while some nations have prospered by flouting conventional wisdom
