According to the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Bank, structural adjustment is the goal of the economic and social programs which they impose upon indebted Third World governments. This booklet examines Structural Adjustment Programs from the perspective of those who are made to bear the burden of 'adjustment' in countries around the world. It shows how not only nations of the Third World, but also Canada and Eastern Europe, are being subjected to structural adjustment.
