The U.S. War On Yugoslavia

“It’s the third worldization of Yugoslavia, it’s the third worldization of the U.S., it’s the third worldization of EVERYWHERE

With that borrowing came DEBT and with that came the IMF conditions for restructuring; austerity measures – you cut back in public sector spending, you cut wages, you cut employment”
