A well-documented, up-to-date and readable account of the Third World's debt crisis, the IMF's new role in prescribing domestic economic policies on a more or less permanent basis, and the destruction of long-term development prospects this entails. The authors argue that the only feasible alternative comprises conditional loans geared to reducing the historical structural defects of LDC economics, and administered by a democratized international monetary system.
