Does the West Still Know Best? How Will the Global Economic
Crisis of 2008-09 Affect International Aid and Development
TLC 127 5:30pm-7pm
Western developed nations, led by the U.S., have pushed a globalized free-market economic model on developing nations. The IMF and World Bank have often conditioned financial aid packages on implementation of “free-market reforms”. But in 2008, the developed nations themselves experienced an unprecedented economic crisis in banking and other markets. In this presentation, Jim Luke will discuss the implications of the 2008-09 global economic crisis and the need for bank bail-outs on future aid to developing nations.
