Protection of the Poor and the Millennium Development Goals
Six Decades of Unequal Development
Kunibert Raffer and H. W. Singer
The Economic North–South Divide explores the structural roots of the debt crisis and considers the impact of debt management on North–South economic relations, exposing certain double standards that tilt global markets further against the South. Encouraged by recent successful opposition to neoliberalism, the authors finally propose ideas for a world where people seem to matter.
