Any good books on IMF or Global bank?



July 27, 2012 – Comments (7)

I really don't know what the IMF or Global bank does, or is.  I don't even know if they are the same thing.  Does anybody have any good book suggestions on it/them, so I can learn about what it does, and how it works, and a little bit of the history of it?

Good question! I'm looking forward to hearing people's suggestions.

The only book i've read that's even remotely close to this topic is "End the Fed", by Ron Paul. I could defintely use a good book on the IMF.

pretty sure you mean world bank...Global Bank is an NY commercial bank...

And read wikipedia. Thats the easiest and most effective. Also reading their websites and searching google for the pieces you are interested in will probably get you quite a bit of knowledge.

See, just showing my ignorance here.

I much prefer books to random articles.  I know it is probably more effecitve but I am a book kind of guy.

"The BCCI scandal gave citizens of the world a rare glimpse into the inner workings of the covert global banking intelligence power structure, revealing power politics in its purest form... It involved leaders from 73 countries and formed what was described as “an elaborate corporate spider web.”

You won't find much real info on their sites but here is some info on the global banking/military/intel complex interests. I would bet that only the names have changed- eye opening story.

Basically, as I think you know the IMF and the World Bank are funded by the U.S. and other developed nations, and they lend money to developing countries. 

This basic scenario creates all sorts of opportunities for Leftists to hate them for being proxies of imperialist capitalist pigs, and ironically also creates all sorts of opportunities for neo-anarchists and conservatives to hate them for being "precursors to world government" and the like. 

 There are many books on them available on and in libraries, a few that stuck out to me as possibly more informative than preachy are below:

Two books on the IMF:

This on the World Bank:
