World Bank Literature

Résumé

The increased international tension of the early twenty-first century has made sustained examination and critique of globalization more essential than ever. World Bank Literature brings together essays by a distinguished group of economists, cultural and literary critics, social scientists, and public policy analysts to ask how to understand the influence of the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund on global economic power relations and cultural production. The authors attack this question in myriad ways, examining World Bank/IMF documents as literature, their impact on developing nations, the relationship between literature and globalization, the connection between the academy and the global economy, and the emergence of coalitions confronting the new power. World Bank Literature shows the multifarious and sometimes nefarious ways that academic debates play themselves out concretely in social policy and cultural mores that reinforce traditional power structures.
