Surveying a decade of World Bank funded damage to lives and land.


Over the past decade, 3.4 million people have been physically or economically displaced – that could mean forced from their homes, it could mean they lost all or part of their land, or that their livelihoods have been damaged.

Investigative journalist Michael Hudson surveys the damage done by World Bank funded projects, from destruction of ecosystems to displacement of indigenous people, and explains why increased competition within international development accelerated the problem and what happens when the organization is confronted with evidence of its own effects on the world.

Michael is part of the joint International Consortium of Investigative Journalists / Huffington Post project Evicted & Abandoned: How the World Bank Broke its Promise to Protect the Poor.
