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

25 editions published between 1993 and 1999 in English and held by 912 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
A Siamese tragedy : development and disintegration in modern Thailand by Walden F Bello( Book )

16 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 438 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

Farm Workers in the '90 S: Where Do We St and? Food First Action Alert by Shea Cunningham( Book )

1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

During the 1980s, the rise of independent farm labor contractors and Republican labor policies led to a deterioration in the economic well-being of farmworkers and their families. Delays in the implementation of new safeguards under the Worker Protection Standards Act have resulted in continuing exposure to pesticides, causing such exposure to remain a major health risk for farmworkers, their families, and children. Fifty percent of farmworkers live below the poverty level and their life expectancy is 49 years, figures that are unchanged since the 1960s. The Farm Labor Organizing Committee (floc) is known for its vision and strategic ability to plan for the future. Its three-way bargaining strategy created annual negotiations among workers, growers, and processors. By revealing the manner in which industries use labor contracting to exploit workers, floc has paved the way to innovative labor organizing. Floc recently established a U.S.-Mexico union commission to oversee negotiations in both countries. They are contacting their counterparts in other countries to fight for agreements, crop by crop and company by company. Though the international tendency toward free trade marked by nafta and gatt increasingly plays off workers in different countries against each other, there are signs that labor is awakening and that a new generation of leaders is thinking creatively about trans-border organizing. Strategies for individual action in support of farmworkers include writing to local newspapers, honoring boycotts, supporting the National Farm Worker Ministry, contacting legislators, and getting involved with Student Action with Farmworkers (saf).
