On a recent rainy Saturday in Washington, D.C., hundreds of people took to the streets for the biggest and most successful protest in front of the World Bank annual meetings in a decade. The World Bank is currently revising its policies to protect people and the planet, and we were there to prevent the World Bank from weakening these protections.
On the heels of that mobilization, I am pleased to invite you to a special event featuring my friend and longtime World Bank advocate Bruce Rich. Bruce will be in the Bay area next week to talk about his new book, Foreclosing the Future: The World Bank and the Politics of Environmental Destruction. He will be giving talks in San Francisco and Berkeley.

Bruce’s new book shows how the World Bank’s failure to address the challenges of the 21st century has implications for everyone. He recounts a story of larger-than-life personalities, international intrigue, and human suffering brought about by a winner-take-all economic globalization — and identifies the changes necessary if the World Bank and the world’s governments are to make real progress in helping the poorest and sustaining the environmental resources on which all of us depend.
