"The debtor nations are pressured to privatize their economies, selling at scandalously low prices their state-owned mines, railroads, and utilities to private corporations.

They are forced to open their forests to clear-cutting and their lands to strip mining, without regard to the ecological damage done." Michael Parenti 2/16/07 http://www.commondreams.org/views07/0216-30.htm

What is at the kernel of this system Parenti describes? Some might say it's a stretch to attempt to apply straight Girard to these economic phenomena, but a few of us at New Café have detected some explanatory power in break-downs of Rene Girard's theories, that is... paraphrased or economically interpreted Girardian concepts.
