Britannica: The Washington Consensus
Basically, the Banksters in their august wisdom and greed got together and decided that the Latin American countries should borrow from them. Good deal for the banks; slavery for Latin America.
I can't stress this enough: It's time to re-watch The Take (2004) YouTube. (Click on "CC" for subtitles.) Buenos Aires (Argentina) workers were guilty of attempting to build an alternative economy. It's one of the most beautiful and moving documentaries you'll ever see, except for how it ends.
You'll see the power of the corporations that had profited in Argentina and then pulled out when it became even more profitable to do so, leaving ordinary citizens unable even to draw their meagre savings out of the bank. And then you'll see how creative and resourceful and mutually cooperative some people can be when left to solve their own problems -- but also how some other people, clinging to the hope of a saviour, can once again fall prey to a smooth-talking politician claiming to seek forgiveness.
SNC-Lavalin wields a huge amount of power in Canada, to the point where the retention of Trudeau's mask of Liberalism and adherence to the so-called "rule of law" depends largely on the level of protection he can manage to provide for that one company, let alone all of the other Canadian "growth" companies now champing at the bit to fulfill their "Global Ambitions".
TorontoSun: Why does Trudeau desperately want to save SNC-Lavalin?
Don't imagine that Justin Trudeau is not capable of finding the words to vaguely admit to an unspecified lapse of firmness with regard to SNC-Lavalin and to offer a solemn promise of some unspecified remediation, while begging the voters' understanding and forgiveness in this election year.
He'd be very good at it, I'm sure, though it's not going to get him and his sidekick off the Venezuela hook.
It was by similar means that the old system in Argentina has returned, with promises that things would be different, fairer, more honest -- but Argentina is now one of the members of the Lima Group, supporting the coup in Venezuela.
And by now we all should know that it was Canada's "Liberal" government that organized the whole shebang. Remember when it used to be "Yankee go home"? Well, how does it feel now that it's "Canuck go home"?
