Against Global Apartheid: South Africa Meets the World Bank, IMF and International Finance
South Africans hold positions of great influence in the world of international finance: President Thabo Mbeki is the leader of the Non-Aligned Movement and Commonwealth; Finance Minister Trevor Manuel recently chaired the World Bank and IMF Board of Governors; Mamphela Ramphele is a Managing Director of the World Bank, responsible for social development. Patrick Bond wonders about the impact these leaders will have in the new century. Are these leaders going to "break" the chains of global apartheid? What actions are grassroots acitivists taking around the world? Should key institutions like the World Bank and WTO be eliminated? These are among the questions he asks in this revealing investigation.
