Frases do dia - algo novo no Banco Mundial

“Through a series of specific cases, we have demonstrated how growth – the market-led economic growth sought by governments, the growth in profits celebrated by businesses, and the growth in power and influence of transnational financial and corporate interests – often comes at the expense of the disenfranchised and vulnerable… As the imperatives of growth at any cost increasingly determine economic and social policy and the behavior of global corporations, more people join the ranks of the poor and greater numbers suffer and die.” 

Tirado de um livro cujo coautor é o provável futuro presidente do Banco Mundial, Jim Yong Kim, indicado como candidato dos EUA para o cargo por Obama. No blog do Instituto de Pesquisas do Desenvolvimento da NYU tem mais.
