From the WINGS archives. In 1987, when she delivered this talk in San Francisco, political scientist Susan George was a fellow at the Institute for Policy Studies in Washington DC and the Transnational Institute in Amsterdam. She is now President of the Transnational Institute. Her talk lays out the premises that would appear in her 1988 book A Fate Worse than Debt and her subsequent scholarship. She outlines how loans from the International Monetary Fund and World Bank act as Trojan horses for economic colonization, and what populations, especially women, children and the poor, suffer from such debt.
Speech recorded at the University of San Francisco; episode produced and hosted by Katherine Davenport; WINGS series producer, Frieda Werden
