War By Other Means
John Pilger examines the policy of First World banks agreeing loans with Third World countries, which are then unable to meet the cripling interest charges. An interesting documentary, that relativizes helps provided by northern hemisphere to African continent. John Pilger questions whether poor countries will ever develop while burdened with massive debts to the West.
John Pilger travels to many third world countries to investigate the devastating results of loans from the World Bank and International Monetary Fund (IMF). This film shows how many wars today are not carried out at the barrel of a gun, but by the monetary policies of global banking institutions.
Instead of bombs, it has been discovered that debt is a far more powerful weapon to control and maintain the power of global economic interests. It turns out that the "structural-adjustment" policies of neo-liberal economics are even more deadly than nerve gas and many other weapons of war. This documentary backs up many of the claims made by John Perkins, author of Confessions of an Economic Hit Man.
