Dark victory : the United States, structural adjustment, and global poverty by Walden F Bello( Book )

29 editions published between 1993 and 1999 in English and held by 918 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bello argues that lower barriers to imports, removal of restrictions on foreign investments, privatisation of state owned activities, reduction in social welfare spending, and wage cuts and devaluation of local currencies - all conditions of structural adjustment loans from the North - have had disastrous consequences. Dark Victory is now reissued with a new epilogue by the authors."--Jacket
Deglobalization : ideas for a new world economy by Walden F Bello( Book )

48 editions published between 2000 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 734 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"How to manage the world economy - and, more fundamentally, whether humanity wishes it to go in an ever more market-oriented, transnational corporation-dominated and capital-footloose direction - is the most important international question of our time. In this short and trenchant history of those bodies - the World Bank, IMF, WTO and Group of Seven - which have promoted this economic globalization, Walden Bello points to their manifest failings; examines the major new ideas put forward for reforming the management of the world economy; and argues for a much more fundamental shift towards a decentralized, pluralistic system of global economic governance allowing countries to follow development strategies sensitive to their own values and particular mix of constraints and opportunities."--Jacket
Dilemmas of domination : the unmaking of the American empire by Walden F Bello( Book )

6 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 511 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Walden Bello punctures the myth of America's invincibility, revealing its carefully concealed contradictions. He shows how, despite the enormity of the U.S. defense budget, American forces are critically overextended - a condition bound to intensify as each local "victory" breeds simmering resistance and new confrontations elsewhere. He points to the empire's looming economic breakdown, the result of its gargantuan military costs, record-breaking deficits, and exploitative trade and investment relations with developing countries. On the political front, he warns of the disillusionment mounting around the world in response to America's failure to champion liberal democracy. Everywhere America goes, crony capitalism, gross inequalities in income, and the hostile coercion of foreign peoples undermine its pretenses of justice and inclusion, leaving embittered - and often violently vengeful - populations in its wake."--Jacket

A Siamese tragedy : development and disintegration in modern Thailand by Walden F Bello( Book )

16 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 437 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Thailand has come to be known as the Fifth Tiger. With the Asian economic collapse of 1997-1998, this book poses the central question: Is this merely a short term crisis or is there a real prospect of Thailand being pushed back into Third World status? The International Monetary Fund has intervened with an irrelevant, indeed damaging policy package that promises to determine the outcome." "A Siamese Tragedy argues that, even before the collapse, the Thai economy had feet of clay. Walden Bello and his co-authors show how vested interests, local and international, propelled the Thai people down a particular path which is unsustainable in terms of human exploitation, social disruption, ecological damage and economic fragility. Thailand, like rest of the world, needs to rethink the fundamentals of its economic model."--Jacket
