Chapter 3: The World Strategy of Capitalism, by Samir Amin  in  The Other Davos: Globalization of Resistances and Struggles

Book Chapter by Francois Houtart and Francois Polet

Book Chapter by Tissa Balasuriya

The poor countries are poor not so much because they lack natural resources, but because their resources are being taken by others, often at very low prices.
