    La corrupción y la trampa de la pobreza en el Tercer Mundo

    Walden Bello
    11 Mayo 2010
    Article

Sin embargo, los "camisas rojas" en Tailandia no se dejan distraer por la línea de "corrupción" que marcan el Banco Mundial y el FMI. Todo lo contrario; han decidido mantener su mirada en el objetivo (la verdadera respuesta a la pobreza) y luchar por que las políticas económicas a favor del pueblo sustituyan al neoliberalismo.

    Pedro Paez Perez
    01 Octubre 2009
    Article

    The first anniversary of Lehman Brothers’ collapse and last week’s meeting of the G20 countries have provoked numerous reflections on the causes and possible solutions to the current financial and economic mess.
