The Market Tells Them So: The World Bank and Economic Fundamentalism in Africa
Zed Books, 1995 - 313 pagina's
Structural adjustment is not just an economic strategy but, this book argues, embodies a social, cultural and even religious vision for the remaking of Africa and the world. This highly original critique of the World Bank's structural adjustment agenda in Africa explodes the value-free pretensions of economics. It provides a more integrated understanding of questions of faith and values in development than has been available from theologians and social scientists up to now, and helps to explain why churches are so intimately involved in these struggles. The book focuses on three aspects of structural adjustment in Africa: the fundamentalist character of World Bank thinking in the scale of its ambitions and its denial of the legitimacy of contrary views; criticisms of structural adjustment from a variety of social science perspectives; and the resistance to this agenda emerging from African churches and social movements.
