Thomas Piketty, the CADTM and Public Debt

CADTM - en - 3 horas 46 minutos atrás

Piketty and public debt
Piketty devotes a dozen very interesting pages to the question of public debt over the last two centuries, focusing his analysis mainly on France and the United Kingdom. He rightly states that in discussing public debt, studying the past is worthwhile for understanding and dealing with the challenges of the current crisis: “The complex question of government debt and the nature of the wealth associated with it is no less important today than it was in 1800, and by (...)

The IMF Is Using the Debt Crisis to Hollow Out Pakistan's Sovereignty

CADTM - en - 11 horas 53 minutos atrás

Imran Khan's government came to power in 2018 promising to reorient Pakistan's economy toward the needs of the population. But faced with a debt crisis it soon dropped its reformist agenda — and now, the International Monetary Fund is pressuring it to place its State Bank permanently beyond democratic control. As the COVID-19 crisis continues to wreak havoc, at the end of March UN Secretary General António Guterres called for “decisive action” to avert the developing world's deepening debt (...)

A grim new year for debt-trapped rural women in Sri Lanka

CADTM - en - 16-04-2021

M. Champa Irangani is in no mood to celebrate ‘Avurudu', or New Year, the biggest annual festival that Sri Lanka's majority Sinhalese community observes mid-April, while Tamils celebrate the Tamil New Year around the same time.
“The New Year will dawn only the day our debts are cancelled. Until then we cannot celebrate. Surely not, when so many women have died by suicide under the pressure of microfinance loans,” she says, seated with dozens of affected women who have been observing a (...)

Dettes & migrations : Divisions internationales au service du capital

CADTM - fr - 16-04-2021

Penser les migrations sous le prisme de leur contexte politique, c'est en refuser les explications qui reposent sur des causes conjoncturelles et qui invisibilisent les responsabilités des pays dominants. La majorité des personnes migrantes viennent de pays qui se situent dans des régions du Sud lourdement fragilisées par des siècles de colonialisme, puis de politiques néolibérales imposées par les pays du Nord. Les personnes migrantes se déplacent donc bien souvent pour tenter d'échapper à la misère (...)

IMF and debt: a new consensus?

CADTM - en - 16-04-2021

There is much talk among ‘progressive' economists that the IMF and the World Bank have turned over a new leaf. Gone are the days of supporting fiscal austerity, demanding that national governments get public debt levels down and insisting on conditions for countries borrowing IMF-WB funds that their governments privatise their state assets, deregulate markets and reduce labour rights.
Now after the experience of the unprecedented COVID pandemic slump, the old ‘Washington Consensus' is over (...)

Ecuador: Resistance against the policies imposed by the World Bank, the IMF and other creditors between 2007 and 2011

CADTM - en - 15-04-2021

Ecuador provides an example of a government which officially decided to investigate the process of indebtedness so as to identify illegitimate debt and suspend its repayment. The fact that the government suspended payment of a large part of its commercial debt, only to buy it back at a lower price, showed that it meant to go beyond mere denunciation. Indeed it undertook the unilateral restructuring of part of its external debt and thus won a moral victory over its private creditors, which (...)

The past year has seen several lockdowns as a result of the pandemic, which have had a deep impact on education, employment and the way we work globally. These factors have had an especially stark effect on women.

Ecuador: From Rafael Correa to Guillermo Lasso via Lenin Moreno

CADTM - en - 14-04-2021

On 11 April 2021, Guillermo Lasso (52,4%), the right-wing candidate, defeated Andres Arauz, the candidate supported by Rafael Correa and part of the Left, by 52.4% vs 47.6% in the second round of ballots for the presidential election. Lasso was elected thanks to the division of the Left, since a significant part of it, which has become deeply diffident of Rafael Correa, called for a null vote. Votes on the popular side, that represented a clear majority in the first round of February 2021, (...)

Caulinos: Quando o crime compensa

CADTM - pt - 14-04-2021

Uma empresa mineira que prevaricou vê-se premiada com ainda mais terrenos, numa zona onde, apesar da existência de mais de uma dezena de explorações de caulino, o nome deste minério ainda soa a morte, desde Junho de 1988, quando Carlos Simões foi assassinado pelas forças policiais ao tentar impedir o início da laboração mineira no centro da freguesia de Barqueiros (Braga, Portugal).
Em Junho de 2017, a Direção Geral de Energia e Geologia (DGEG) verificou que a empresa Motamineral, Minerais (...)
