Oh my God.. is this book depressing!!!!
I am trying to figure out which of the following chapters furnishes the worst news.
World without Democracy
Trick or Treaties
The United Nations of Corruption
The World Bank
In our Backyard
The Enemy Within
My vote goes to Part Nine: Foreign Aid: Biting the hand that feeds them.
"Why do we give $12.9 million in foreign aid to China, a nation with more than $1trillion of foreign currency reserves?
We are giving hundreds of millions in foreign aid to countries that lend us money!"
This is a "Must read book", but if it gets too depressing for you... just read the "ACTION AGENDA" @ the end of each part.
Is there hope??????
