Ah, yes, the all too usual scenario. In the Third World, this implies further
deregulation, because what counts is the balance of political forces. The basic
IMF discourse, once the results of their policies become apparent, is that
reforms have still to be completed before the benefits can be reaped. And the
World Bank, after that, comes to the rescue of those who have not fallen down
from the coach but are dangling against the tracks. What the WB generally
achieves is a further epidemics of people falling down.
