  •  you are kidding us right? (3+ / 0-)

    naomi klein is more than credible; she is one degree short of visionary

    and the world bank and imf have a superficial commitment to ending poverty while having a quite transparent agenda of protecting the 1%

    i'm not saying they are all filled with evil dooers, but the evil dooers have had control of their most important policy moves for a long time.

    you need to do a lot of reading.  seriously.

    •  you know (0+ / 0-)

      when people disagree with you, you shouldn't assume they know less than you do.  They might, in fact, know more than you, or they might know different things from you, or they might have reached different conclusions.

      As it turns out, I've done quite a bit of reading.

      I would recommend you go to the world bank site and spend time just looking through the projects they fund and you'll find that this myth that they only fund giant projects to benefit wealthy banks is just that, a myth.  

      Yes, that's part of what they've done, and for a while that was their focused.  However, they also do many other projects that do not operate that way.  

      Hay hombres que luchan un dia, y son buenos Hay otros que luchan un año, y son mejores Hay quienes luchan muchos años, y son muy buenos. Pero hay los que luchan toda la vida. Esos son los imprescendibles.

      •  i have a friend at the world bank (0+ / 0-)

        i know pretty well how they work.  no matter what they may fund or what parts of the institution may say, they are not a force for good.  period.  now that could change, but such a change would be fought from all quarters who have invested in the overall project.

        if you have a bigger point to make: make it with evidence.  dissing naomi klein tipped me off to your skewed perspective right away.  you didn't supply one iota of evidence as to why you believe she is debunked or whatever you said.  not one iota on a site which takes her work seriously as a model and will continue to do so.  

        the world is out of whack in a big way, but it is not as simple as the poor in other nations versus the poor in this nation.  all of this exists in complex relation.

        my friend was hired and promoted inside the world bank because of her knowledge of poverty, but that doesn't make them a 'good' organization overall.
