Faith and Credit: World Bank's Secular Empire

Faith and Credit: World Bank's Secular Empire

by SusanGeorge (Author), Fabrizio Sabelli (Author)


The authors compare the ideologies of the free-market with religious faith, giving the World Bank the role of a secular church setting out to convert the world's underdeveloped economies to the consumer capitalist way, and so to create an enormous secular empire. This book is published in September 1994 to coincide with the World Bank's 50th anniversary. Susan George is the author of "Ill Fares the Land", "How the Other Half Dies", "A Fate Worse than Debt" - winner of the 1988 US World Hunger Media Awards and French UNICEF Committee Prize 1989.
