Global poverty did not just happen.
It began with military conquest, slavery, and colonization: the seizure of land, minerals, and forced labor. It has persisted until the present as a result of unfair debt, trade, and tax policies, which the rich nations of the North have imposed on the nations of the global South — Latin America, Africa, and much of Asia. Even today, independent action by any nation of the global South may result in assassination of a leader or military intervention by the U.S. In short, geo-politics is the primary cause of global poverty.

This book shows how that system came into being. It begins with a description by the director of how “The End of Poverty?” was shot on location on four continents, interviewing over one hundred experts and poor people. A complete transcript of the film follows. Finally, over seventy full interviews — including Joseph Stiglitz, Amartya Sen, John Perkins, Chalmers Johnson, Susan George, and Eric Toussaint — give an in-depth account of the methods of global economic domination.
