    Corrupt politicians (or robber barons, or dictators) in 'recipient' countries are the enablers that allow the WB and all the rest to operate.

    That is completely ridiculous.  Corrupt politicians in
    poor countries ARE NOT rich or powerful (or even
    corrupt) TO START with.  They only GET to be rich by
    RESPONDING TO INCENTIVES OFFERED by rich powerful
    MNCs, i.e., by agreeing to become corrupt,
    i.e., by selling out.

    The place where the corrupt politicians are the
    enablers  IS AMERICA, DUMBASS.  That is why I wish
    Edwards would spend more time talking about
    The Republicans and less about The Corporations.

      for clearing that up and calling me a DUMBASS too.  I see that you not only have a sound grasp of the nuanced reality in which we operate but are also deeply mature and well versed.  Nice job.
