Inflation Bogey Blocking Recovery
By Anis Chowdhury and Jomo Kwame SundaramSYDNEY and KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 19 2021 (IPS) The bogey of inflation has been revived. Dubious pre-pandemic economic progress, fiscal constraints and vaccine apartheid were bad enough. Now, ostensibly anti-inflationary measures also threaten recovery and sustainable development. The International Monetary Fund (IMF) has revised downwards its latest global growth forecast. Its latest World Economic Outlook (WEO) warns of a “dangerous divergence” between richer and poorer countries. This has been exacerbated by, but has also worsened national fiscal disparities and the &lsqu...

The Plight of Haiti
By Jan LundiusSTOCKHOLM / ROME, Sep 30 2021 (IPS) I assume channel surfing and internet browsing contribute to a decrease in people’s attention span. I am not familiar with any scientific proof, though while working as a teacher I found that some students may be exhausted when five minutes of a lesson has passed and begin fingering on their smartphones.
