Speaking freely. the path to socialism( Visual )

1 edition published in 2008 in Spanish and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Today's most celebrated thinkers share their insights and opinions on the issues that affect our world. In this special volume of the series, Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez speaks to members of the International Press Core about the advantages of socialism over capitalism and explains why true democracy cannot exist under the latter. Noting that the American empire's practice of privatization, foreign intervention, and violence is not conducive to a humanistic society, Chavez instead offers that the healthiest government is one in which all of its citizens play a role in its construction and development - that the ultimate voice is the voice of the people and that Venezuela will always be committed to maintaining that ideal. Taped on location in Caracas, this briefing is one that will never be shown on American network news and one that should be viewed by anyone who is intrigued by this controversial world leader

Speaking freely by John Perkins( Visual )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For many years John Perkins was an "economic hit man" in the world of international finance; a function he performed by persuading Third World countries to take on large-scale public works projects. Today we recognize that these types of projects, financed by the World Bank and International Monetary Fund (IMF), have served to enrich U.S. corporations while creating crippling debt for these countries, effectively turning them into American client states. Experiencing a change of heart, Perkins resigned from the business in 1981. After running a utility company, he founded the nonprofit organization, Dream Change Coalition, which works closely with Amazonian and other indigenous people to help preserve their environments and cultures. Take the time for a conversation with Perkins about globalization and inequality around the world

La fin de la pauvreté? by Philippe Diaz( Visual )

2 editions published in 2010 in French and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La pauvreté n'est pas un accident ... Avec tant de richesse dans le monde, pourquoi y a t-il encore tant de pauvreté? S'aventurant au-delà des réponses "populaires" sur les origines de la pauvreté, le réalisateur Philippe Diaz se demande si les véritables causes ne viennent pas d'une orchestration des pays riches pour exploiter les plus pauvres, et ce depuis l'époque coloniale. Les peuples qui luttent contre la pauvreté s'exprime en condamnant le colonialisme et ses conséquences : appropriation des terres, exploitation des ressources naturelles, dette, néolibéralisme dans laquelle 25% de la population mondiale utilise 85% des richesses. Des favelas d'Amérique Latine aux bidonville d'Afrique, des économistes de renom, des personnalités politiques et des acteurs sociaux révèlent comment les pays développés pillent la Planète ; un saccage qui menace ses capacités à soutenir la vie et accroît toujours plus la pauvreté. Plus de 800 millions de personnes se couchent avec la faim tous les jours dont 300 millions d'enfants. Toutes les 3 secondes, une personne meurt de faim, en majorité des enfants de moins de 5 ans.
