Chapter Summary

This chapter highlights some of the causes and consequences that are at work in the Global Development War, and particularly those that relate to the global economic organizations (GEOs)-that is, the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the World Bank and its regional counterparts, and the World Trade Organization (WTO). It aims to identify and sort out the various criticisms that have been leveled at the IMF, the multilateral development banks (MDBs), and the WTO. To do more than this would be impossible without an examination of the GEOs themselves-what they are, why they were created, how they operate, etc. The chapter contains an appendix that offers a representative annotated list of citations from a range of sources-law journals, books, newspapers, policy journals, websites, and others- n which criticisms of the types assessed in this book have appeared.

Keywords:Global Development War; global economic organizations (GEOs); International Monetary Fund (IMF); World Bank; World Trade Organization (WTO)
