Hey, Brad, while we are counting bodies, what do you think of Michel Chossudovsky's analysis of "structural adjustment as conducive to a form of economic genocide." See his Globalization of Poverty: Impacts of the IMF and World Bank Reforms (Atlantic Highlands, New Jersey: Zed Books, 1997), highly recommended by Noam Chomsky. Chossudovsky doesn't seem so impressed with the Washington based international bureaucracy of the IMF and WB which as been "entrusted with by international creditors and multinational corporations with the execution of a global economic design which affects the livlihood of more than 80% of the world's population". At any rate, the on-going subsumption of those old Stalinist regimes under the new Washington consensus hasn't much stopped the death march, has it? best, rakesh
