Debt and Trade: Time to Make the Connections (2004)

Rethinking Bretton Woods | Mon, Jul 25, 2005

The Center of Concern announces a new book which explores the interrelationship between the chronic debt of developing countries and the imbalances in the global trading system. This collection of papers, from a conference organized by the Jesuit Centre for Faith and Justice (Dublin) on behalf of the International Jesuit Network for Development on the 9th September 2004, takes a very timely look at the many dimensions of the burden of international debt and system of world trade and their interconnections. Authors from the USA, Zambia, the Philippines, Columbia and Brazil give first hand accounts of the impact of debt and unfair trade on their countries. The policy agenda of the major international financial institutions is analyzed and representatives from the European Commission and European aid groups discuss possible reforms.

This book is a must for anyone interested in the creation of just and sustainable policies in debt and trade.
