Learn about Life and Debt

Recently, I watched the independent film Life and Debt. It's an excellent piece on how the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank are destroying Jamaica's economy, while simultaneously supporting, stabilizing and encouraging the growth of larger economic communities (like the US).

Unfortunately, there seems to be no way out of the mess these organizations create and mandate. If anyone has any ideas about how to resist or subvert these world financial organizations, please let me know. Perhaps we can collect such thoughts here and use them to reduce the existing economic disparities.

In the mean time, watch Life and Debt. It will change the way you think about 'developing' countries, and give you a new view on that trip to Jamaica.
