Corbalan, Maria Alejandra. Banco Mundial. Intervención y disciplinamiento. El caso Argentino, enseñanzas para América Latina. Buenos Aires, Argentina, 2002

Este libro analiza el papel del Banco Mundial en el proceso de reordenamiento del sistema capitalista a través de la actuación de ese organismo en el período 1990-1996 en la Argentina, años durante los cuales se llevó a cabo la reforma del Estado. Intenta desconstruir el "mito" erigido en torno del Banco Mundial, así como de otros organismos multilaterales de crédito.

El análisis de las estrategias desplegadas para ello por el Banco Mundial revela la importancia de su injerencia en procesos económicos y sociales nacionales, que sin duda puede ser considerada como una enseñanza para los países latinoamericanos. more
