12. World Bank Topics: Food Crisis [pdf]
As concerns grow over the emerging food crisis across the globe, the
WorldBank has decided to create this page to inform the general public
about their coordinated efforts to combat this growing problem. In
brief, the World Bank's "New Deal" on global food policy includes
creating safety nets such as school feeding, food for work, and
conditional cash transfers.
Additional elements of this policy include doubling agricultural
lending to Africa over the coming year and also providing immediate aid
to the country of Haiti to feed poor children and other vulnerable
groups. First-time visitors should look first at the "Understanding the
Crisis" section which provides brief synopses of the situation in
different parts of the world, including Africa and Asia. On the
right-hand side of the page, visitors can look through the "Behind the
News" updates and even donate online to the World Food Program. Finally,
the site also contains a calendar of events and links to papers from the
World Bank on related topics. [KMG]

This appears to be alligator tears from the World Bank and it's
henchmen, the World Trade Organization and the International Monetary
Fund. Under structural readjustments, nations, as a prerequisite
for a loan must slash social spending (schools, health care, ect.),
open markets to international corporations, agree to sell off state
assets, banks, telecommunications, water, ect.), and direct farming to
export markets (not produce for local consumption). A quarter of the
export earning are to go to debt repayment. This is astounding as
Germany after WWII, only had to pay 3.5%. In 2002, if Mozambique would
have been able to use half of their debt repayment (25% of export
earnings), 100,000 children per year would not have died.
And people wonder why the WTC was attacked twice.
Fundamentally racism at it¹s finest . Wonder if anyone will
understand this in our local school system?
Thanks Billy for the small amount of words that cuts to the chase !

grow the more we can export.

Bill, I think you dropped something. Sheesh, as the "Big Guy"
would say, when he's not out trying to rebuild Eden.
