Banking on Life & Death, narrated by actor Martin Sheen, presents a highly informative analysis of the origins and development of the IMF and the World Bank. It examines the ways in which these international financial institutions have usurped control of economic and political decision making in Ghana, Brazil, and the Philippines, and analyzes the disastrous effects of their structural adjustment policies. 30 mins, 1995 What is the origin of Third World debt? Narrated by actress Julie Harris the video explores how aggressive lending policies in the 1970s helped create the Third World debt and how, beginning in the 1980s, heavy-handed and misguided World Bank and IMF structural adjustment policies exacerbated poverty.
