War By Other Means

War By Other Means
Directed by David Munro

“Contrary to a myth long popular in the West, it’s been the poor of the world that finance the rich – not the other way around – and this film sets out to explain why. It’s also a film about war, a war you don’t see on your television screens for it’s seldom news. It’s been described as a silent war. Instead of soldiers dying, there are children dying…Instead of the bombing of bridges, there is the tearing down of forests and other natural resources; the bulldozing of farmland; and the running down of schools and hospitals. In many ways, it’s like a colonial war. The difference is that these days, people and the resources are controlled not by viceroys and occupying armies, but by other more sophisticated means of which the principle is debt.”

John Pilger and David Munro examine the policy of First World banks agreeing loans with Third World countries, who are then unable to meet the crippling interest charges.
