The End of Poverty? Think Again!

Global poverty did not just happen: It began with military conquest, slavery, and colonization and persists in our own time as a result of unfair debt, trade, and tax policies, which the rich nations of the North have imposed on the nations of the global South: Latin America, Africa, and much of Asia. Even today, independent action by any nation of the global South may result in assassination of a leader or military intervention by the U.S. In other words, geopolitics is the primary cause of global poverty.

This book shows how that system came into being. It begins with a description by the director of how The End of Poverty? was shot on location on four continents, interviewing over one hundred experts and poor people. A complete transcript of the film follows. Finally, over seventy full interviews including Joseph Stiglitz, Amartya Sen, John Perkins, Chalmers Johnson, Susan George, and Eric Toussaint gives an in-depth account of the methods of global economic domination.
