&i;`An excellent expose of how people's human rights are being sacrificed on the alter of the free market in the name of development.'&o; Professor Fantu Cheru, Former UN Special Rapporteur on Structural Adjustment
'Structural adjustment has been the most controversial economic and social policy model foisted onto a reluctant Third World in the past two to three decades. SAPRIN has been a pioneering network tracking, critiquing and acting on its damaging effects. This vitally important book cogently summarizes the various effects of structural adjustment and should be read by all who care about the developing world.' - Martin Khor, Third World Network 'Structural Adjustment: The SAPRI Report illustrates the devastating impact that structural adjustment policies, undemocratically imposed by the international financial institutions, have had on national productive capacity, employment, wages and the growing number of people in poverty. It captures what we in Mexico and Latin America have fought against for the past two decades and is all the more pertinent given the intensifying challenges to neoliberalism in the region.' - Cuauhtemoc Cardenas, former Senator, Governor and Mexican presidential candidate 'An excellent expose of how people's human rights are being sacrificed on the altar of the free market in the name of development.' - Professor Fantu Cheru, former UN Special Rapporteur on Structural Adjustment 'This book documents a unique exercise in broad-based civil society participation, collaboration and engagement with official institutions. It represents a strong challenge to governments and the World Bank to open up economic policymaking to reflect local knowledge and realities.' - Lidy Nacpil, International Coordinator, Jubilee South and Secretary General, Freedom from Debt Coalition (Philippines) 'We urgently need to change the way the aid business is conducted, including structural adjustment. This global report contains findings that warrant close examination by the international financial institutions, development agencies, and national governments.' - Jan Vandemoortele, Bureau for Development Policy, UNDP
