Defending IMF Financial Terrorism

by Stephen Lendman

The IMF wages financial terrorism on humanity.

On March 29, New York Times editors headlined "Strengthening the IMF." What demands abolition, they support. It doesn't surprise. 

Longstanding Times policy supports wealth, power and privilege. Populist interests are spurned. Unmet human needs are ignored. Managed news misinformation is featured. Wrong over right is endorsed. It's been so from inception.

Times editors admit IMF policies aren't widely loved. It "forced countries in financial distress to adopt counterproductive austerity policies, and it failed to anticipate the financial crisis."

No matter. It "helped stabilize the global economy, most recently by providing loans to troubled European countries like Greece and Ireland."

It's "the world's primary defense against global financial disasters."

"Increasing the fund's resources will ensure that it can respond quickly to another wave of turmoil in Europe or elsewhere that would inevitably hurt the American economy."
