Structural adjustment, loans, corruption and profits – the case of Mozambique
A new debt crisis is looming and threatens to force African governments to surrender their sovereignty to international financial institutions and to accept structural adjustment programmes that impose reductions in their social spending.
A case in point are the loans amounting to more than USD 2 billion given to three Mozambican shell companies by the banks Credit Suisse and the Russian VTB.
The objective of the conference is to understand the mechanisms of indebtedness and how the latter curtails the policy-making capacity of indebted countries, increases poverty and inequality and prevents true development.
