A classic talk from 1999 by political scientist MICHAEL PARENTI--still illuminating and often funny.
This week, Parenti shows how Western powers un-developed the "Third-World"--increasing poverty there in order to enrich corporations at home. Indeed, US foreign policy seems aimed largely at increasing the profits of the Fortune 500. This is the real purpose of the many US military interventions abroad, including "humanitarian" interventions.
Parenti's talk, titled "Globalization: the New Imperialism," was delivered in Raleigh, NC, in November 1999. Audio courtesy of Sally Soriano and People's Video-Audio.
"New World Notes" is produced under the auspices (Latin for "radar") of WWUH-FM, a community service of that beacon of light in darkest Connecticut, the University of Hartford.
