Profits from poverty: How big business is cashing in on aid

October 2012

Over the past decade, the Department for International Development (DfID) has increasingly been putting the culture and interests of the private sector at the heart of its work. Aid is being used to encourage private sector involvement in developing countries, whether this is in the form of supporting pro-market policies or directly channelling aid money through companies.

One size for all: A study of IMF and World Bank Poverty Reduction Strategies

September 2005

In recent years the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and World Bank have adopted new ways of working and new rhetoric on ‘country ownership’ and ‘participation’. At the start of the 1980s, the two institutions began to make their loans and aid conditional on implementing ‘structural adjustment’ policies. The set of structural adjustment conditions, commonly referred to as the ‘Washington Consensus’, have been widely criticised both for undermining national political processes and causing widespread social and economic damage.

States of Unrest: Resistance to IMF policies in poor countries

September 2000

Since Seattle 1999, the media has heralded the dawn of a new movement in Europe and America, epitomised by protests aimed at the WTO, IMF and the World Bank.
However, this 'new movement', portrayed by the media as students and anarchists from the rich and prosperous global north, is just the tip of the iceberg. In the global south, a far deeper and wide-ranging movement has been developing for years, largely ignored by the media.
