The so-called IMF structural adjustment programs? There's nothing structural about them other than deepening the structural deficiencies. @FadhelKaboub @sdgrumbine Happy 200th!

Super delighted to have collaborated with Jomo Kwame Sundaram, @ksjomo, on this piece: "Open Veins of #Africa Bleeding Heavily".

Economic and Monetary Sovereignty in 21st Century Africa

Overview

Economic and Monetary Sovereignty in 21st Century Africa traces the recent history of African monetary and financial dependencies, looking at the ways African nations are resisting colonial legacies. Using a comparative, multi-disciplinary approach, this book uncovers what went wrong after the Pan-African approaches that defined the early stages of independence, and how most African economies fell into the firm grip of the IMF, World Bank, and the EU’s strict neoliberal policies.
