Life and Debt’s focus on Jamaica shows just how vast of an impact this idea…

In conclusion the blundered loan packages of the IMF to Russia are symptomatic of a systemic narcissism that seems to pervade all International Monetary Fund projects. The egocentric belief that a one size fits all solution to intricately nuanced problems in diverse cultural and socioeconomic…
