• The IMF and World Bank Creating Crises

    The IMF and World Bank were created over 60 years ago to realign the global economic landscape. Andrew Gavin Marshall from the Centre for Research on Globalization, however, says that the actions of these international economic giants did little to help the third world countries it advertised it would, and instead has only helped make the wealthier countries wealthier.

Chanting "Stop the economic terror now," the activists erected barricades in the streets and set them ablaze, filling the skies with black smoke as they clamoured to abolish the two giant lending institutions they call a menace to humanity. Police say 30 people were injured, including 20 police officers and 10 protesters, while an undetermined number of people have been arrested.

    The World Bank is funding half a billion dollars in agricultural projects linked to forced and child labor in Uzbekistan. Under the loan agreements, the Uzbek government is required to comply with laws prohibiting forced and child labor, and the World Bank can suspend the loans if there is credible evidence of violations. The Uzbek government forced students, teachers, medical workers, other government employees, private-sector employees, and sometimes children to harvest cotton in 2015 and 2016, as well as to weed the fields and plant cotton in the spring of 2016. The government has threatened to fire people, stop welfare payments, and suspend or expel students if they refuse to work in the cotton fields.

Natural Sound About 5-thousand anti-globalisation activists have marched on the International Monetary Fund (I-M-F) and World Bank summit in Prague, throwing fire bombs and rocks at riot police who responded with tear gas, water cannons and concussion grenades. Chanting "Stop the economic terror now," the activists erected barricades in the streets and set them ablaze, filling the skies with black smoke as they clamoured to abolish the two giant lending institutions they call a menace to humanity. Police say 30 people were injured, including 20 police officers and 10 protesters, while an undetermined number of people have been arrested. One big fight began down the hill from the communist-era convention centre where the finance leaders were meeting on Tuesday. Police in riot gear ordered the protesters to stop their unauthorised demonstration, but some pushed forward, throwing rocks they had made by breaking up a sidewalk. Police fought back. The activists, most of them Europeans, also staged a standoff at a bridge leading to the centre. Deviating from the strategy protesters employed in Seattle in December and Washington in April, the activists did not try to stop delegates from getting into the meetings. Instead, they had vowed to block delegates from leaving the conference centre. In a throwback to U-S anti-war demonstrations of the 1960s, some activists waved banners saying "make love not trade" as they paraded outside the annual meetings of the World Bank and I-M-F. McDonalds is always a favourite target of the anti-globalisation protesters and 15 of them broke into an outlet that had been closed ahead of the rally, damaging the door and furniture inside. South Africa's finance minister, Trevor Manuel, who is chairman of the summit, said it was "a pity that it has descended into violence" but added it was unclear what the activists were seeking as they fight economic globalisation. The Czech authorities had mobilized 11-thousand police to maintain control. Police said some 5-thousand people had turned out for the protest, which if correct meant that the police had more than a two-to-one numerical advantage over the activists. As the protesters got near the summit site, police put up signs in English and German saying the demonstration was not authorized so they should leave. It didn't work, and the street battle raged for hours. In the days leading up to the confrontation, Czech authorities at the border stopped almost 300 people with arrest records from previous anti-globalisation rallies. Among the goals of the protesters was the formation of a human chain around the convention centre, trapping delegates inside. They also threatened to block roads and shut down the city's underground train system. Authorities closed the subway station nearest the convention centre early on Tuesday as a security precaution. Many local shops have closed - with boards placed over their windows - as owners worried their property could be trashed by rampaging mobs. As the bank summit opened, World Bank President James Wolfensohn told delegates the protesters' message should be heard, although he didn't directly mention their tactics. Wolfensohn said he shared "their passion and their questioning."

Henry Hazlitt argued that the World Bank along with the monetary system it was designed within would promote world inflation and "a world in which international trade is State-dominated" when they were being advocated. Stiglitz argued that the so-called free market reform policies which the Bank advocates are often harmful to economic development if implemented badly, too quickly ("shock therapy"), in the wrong sequence or in weak, uncompetitive economies. One of the strongest criticisms of the World Bank has been the way in which it is governed. While the World Bank represents 188 countries, it is run by a small number of economically powerful countries. These countries (which also provide most of the institution's funding) choose the leadership and senior management of the World Bank, and so their interests dominate the bank. Titus Alexander argues that the unequal voting power of western countries and the World Bank's role in developing countries makes it similar to the South African Development Bank under apartheid, and therefore a pillar of global apartheid. In the 1990s, the World Bank and the IMF forged the Washington Consensus, policies which included deregulation and liberalization of markets, privatization and the downscaling of government. Though the Washington Consensus was conceived as a policy that would best promote development, it was criticized for ignoring equity, employment and how reforms like privatization were carried out. Joseph Stiglitz argued that the Washington Consensus placed too much emphasis on the growth of GDP, and not enough on the permanence of growth or on whether growth contributed to better living standards. The United States Senate Committee on Foreign Relations report criticized the World Bank and other international financial institutions for focusing too much "on issuing loans rather than on achieving concrete development results within a finite period of time" and called on the institution to "strengthen anti-corruption efforts". Criticism of the World Bank often takes the form of protesting as seen in recent events such as the World Bank Oslo 2002 Protests, the October Rebellion, and the Battle of Seattle. Such demonstrations have occurred all over the world, even amongst the Brazilian Kayapo people. Another source of criticism has been the tradition of having an American head the bank, implemented because the United States provides the majority of World Bank funding. "When economists from the World Bank visit poor countries to dispense cash and advice," observed The Economist, as Jim Yong Kim said in 2012, "they routinely tell governments to reject cronyism and fill each important job with the best candidate available. It is good advice. The World Bank should take it." Jim Yong Kim is the most recently appointed president of the World Bank. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_bank The role of the Bretton Woods institutions has been controversial since the late Cold War period, due to claims that the IMF policy makers supported military dictatorships friendly to American and European corporations and other anti-communist regimes. Critics also claim that the IMF is generally apathetic or hostile to their views of human rights, and labour rights. The controversy has helped spark the Anti-globalization movement. Arguments in favour of the IMF say that economic stability is a precursor to democracy; however, critics highlight various examples in which democratised countries fell after receiving IMF loans. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IMF

***ORIGINAL UPLOAD BY RTAmerica*** Permission to repost granted. Apr 18, 2011 The IMF and World Bank were created over 60 years ago to realign the global economic landscape. Andrew Gavin Marshall from the Centre for Research on Globalization, however, says that the actions of these international economic giants did little to help the third world countries it advertised it would, and instead has only helped make the wealthier countries wealthier.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday asked secretaries at the Centre and chief secretaries in the state to analyse the World Bank's Ease of Doing Business Report, where India ranked a poor 130th among 190 countries, and suggest areas of improvement. Modi's message to top officials came during his monthly interaction through the Pragati platform, meant to remove hurdles and speed up implementation. It came a day after the World Bank released the annual rankings, generating protests from the government about the multilateral agency's failure to factor in at least a dozen reform initiatives.
