This is an entirely common-sense, fully rational account of what is befalling our planet, poorest inhabitants first, but ultimately all. Of course, there are many things going wrong, and a number of causes. The claim is that, astonishingly, something as simple as the misunderstood nature of money and international trade may well be fundamental to them all -- if you think anything's wrong with anything in the world, you need to hear this story!
This book follows up on Rowbotham's "Grip of Death" and focuses on the 3rd world debt component of the story. The prose is better than "Grip of Death", and the book shorter. I might read this first.
PLEASE get your library to buy copies of this book, and start reading a bit of it. This is relatively easy reading that may change your life significantly.
He warns that the Third World debt trap is an extreme case of the same debt trap that all working families face in our own economies.
You may think Third World debt is a distant problem for distant lands. Think again. This book shows that the mechanisms pushing the Third World into permanent poverty are the same as those that are deferring your retirement and pushing your children into permanent debt with no hope of escape. Like docile frogs slowly being boiled alive, we are slowly being impoverished by the major banking institutions we trust. This book shows how.
Please read this important work.
