debt rescheduling in comparative perspective special research report Photo by law.hku.hk
This paper analyzes the role played by the IMF in eight recent sovereign debt restructurings from a comparative perspective: Argentina (2001-2005), the Dominican Republic (2004-2005), Ecuador (1999-2000), Pakistan (1998-2001), the Russian Federation (1998-2001), Serbia (2000-2004), Ukraine (1998-2000) and Uruguay (2004).

Furthermore, most of the costs of debt relief have been born by ordinary First and Third World taxpayers, while the global banks and Third World elites that have profited enormously from all the lousy projects, capital flight, and corruption that were financed by the debt have escaped scot-free. This is not to suggest that the debt relief campaign has been utterly pointless. It has provided a bully pulpit for scores of entertainers, politicians, economists, religious leaders, and NGOs. It  has occasionally reminded us of the persistent problems of global poverty and inequality. I t has also provided an excuse for some ... market research, surveys and trends
Sham of World Trade Talks
Despite claims to the contrary by Britain’s Tony Blair and others, the best possible outcome of current world trade negotiations for the poorest countries would be for them to fail and for the latter to regroup and present a more focused, united front. Simple common sense – and their common self-interest – demands it. A successful Doha round of the World Trade Organisation (WTO) would only serve to reinforce the neo-mercantilist status quo, whereby the poor countries function as little more than sources of cheap commodities and markets for the more expensive manufactures of the developed nations. This so-called development ... market research, surveys and trends

What are the problems of globalization ?? - Yahoo! Answers
Globalization brings a number of issues with it. The biggest of which is that, in theory it furthers the divide btw the rich and the poor countries.
