In this video acTVism Munich continues to interview journalist and author Ernst Wolff. Wolff’s latest book is called “Pillaging the World: The History and Politics of the IMF” which is also available in German and Arabic. This video series aims to provide context behind the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the role it has played in world affairs since its formation up until the current period.
These and other questions will be addressed in this video:
- Did the IMF break from its traditional policies, given that it did not endorse the Troika’s policies in Greece and even advocated “debt-relief”?
- Is there any precedence in history where grassroots movements were able to reverse the policies of the IMF?
- What role does the media play in analysing and evaluating the policies of the IMF?
