This reader brings the best progressive authors together to critique these two main proponents of neo-liberalism, the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund (IMF). Covers such topics as failed development projects, the feminization of poverty, the destruction of the environment, the internal workings of the World Bank and the IMF, and the struggle to build alternatives to neo-liberal policies.
"A collection of damning indictments that explain how the World Bank and IMF have been twisted into the sales and police forces of the Fortune 500. 50 Years is Enough is a handbook of how the global economy is governed for the few."-John Cavanaugh, Institute for Policy Studies, co-author of Global Dreams
"A timely collection that contributes to substantive understanding of the World Bank as a powerful economic and political institution. Relevant, interesting, thought-provoking, and reader-friendly."-Farshad Araghi, Macro
