'The Debt Boomerang,' by Susan George is an amazing, captivating, and enlightening book. Having been introduced to the book during a college 'social problems class' I grabbed it and read it eagerly. This is a book that all American citizens should read in order to become familiar with an important issue that they won't hear discussed in the media or politically. Third world debt is both tragic and dangerous--and 'we' are in some ways as guilty as anyone for promoting it. Environmental,drug, immigrant, tax burdens, higher un-employment and terrorism are all deligently illustrated as linked to third world debt. Susan George uncovers the secrets that the World Bank and International Monetary Fund don't want you to know, and she does it in a thorough and responsible manner. Read this book!
