In Third World nations, the deal was much worse than communist nations received.� In communist nations, the loans generally went to productive activity that benefited the domestic population.� In Third World nations, the loans all too often went to luxury items for the elite, public works projects that did not benefit the average citizen (but benefited Western capitalists), or the money went straight into the dictator’s Swiss bank account.� When it came time to repay the loans, the dictators did not empty their Swiss bank accounts, and the elite did not sell their Mercedes luxury sedans bought with the loans.� SAPs are notorious for how they restructured the national economies of the subject nations.� Instead of growing food for domestic consumption, they had to grow food for export to the USA, to earn “foreign exchange.”� SAPs played a major role in that situation.� Under SAPs, social spending is slashed for education, medical care, housing, affordable food, and so on.� For instance, around 2000, the African nations of Burkina Faso, Mozambique, Niger, and Tanzania spent more than twice as much money servicing their foreign debt as they spent for primary medical care, in nations where children were starving, illiterate, etc.� To the people in those devastated nations, what is happening is merely colonialism with new rhetoric .� They still do not eat the food they grow.� Their nation’s resources, whether they are crops, mining products, timber, or their labor, still end up going to the imperial powers, while the common people starve and live in destitution.� About the only difference is that they get to fly their own flag.� Flags are not edible, unfortunately.
