Close the IMF, abolish debt and end development: a class analysis of the international debt crisis - Harry Cleaver

The political targets of this article are reformist understandings of international debt and development. Opposing theories which 'blame the victim', Cleaver construes international debt as 'a weapon against the working class', and the debt crisis as 'a product of working class power' . Repudiation of debt is accordingly the necessary Marxist political response .
