IMF Blames Neoliberalism For Low Growth, Inequality

I was surprised to hear that the IMF admitted that austerity and other neoliberal policies have failed. This article serves as a nice little primer on neoliberalism for those who want to know more.

Only blame necessary to apportion is greedy egoism within the Corporate Capitalist framework that seeks to exploit and control the people and resources held by the Earth, and a thirst for unfettered profit, at any cost.

Thanks everyone. JL rightly observes that it is finally becoming obvious that just sucking up resources from countries makes a very poor business model. They will have to find a better way to conduct international business than the usual reckless exploitation that Darren points out. This article suggests that the IMF needs to require some controls and discipline on the part of corporations and bankers when they issue loans to them. The author also points out that the corporations and bankers are not going to like this idea one bit. However, they need to get into reality on this, because the old way of doing things is not working.

Christine Lagarde has been against austerity measures (notably for Greece) for quite some time now, so it is no surprise that the IMF reflects her own personal views.

Greece did pardon German debt in the past. They ought to reflect on that.
