Crash Course - Confronting Debt in the Global South
In this webinar from Crash Course Economics, Dominic Brown discusses the strategies being proposed by popular movements in the Global South to confront their debt. He reflects on current movements and their demands from a historical perspective with a focus on South Africa – his home country. Brown demonstrates how debt issuance in the Global South is often used to implement neoliberal and austerity policies, and discusses how this tendency can be stopped from the bottom up.
Crash Course is a platform designed to open up debate on how we can move out of the current crisis and make the necessary steps towards achieving social, economic, ecological and regenerative justice.
Crash Course is inviting global experts to break down complex issues in lay terms and make them accessible to all so that we can understand how to shape our economic system for a just recovery and future.
