Global Debt: Make a Good Start Better
- Issue: Next month’s meeting of the world’s largest industrialized nations, known as the G-8, provides a rare opportunity to address the debt crisis that is hurting the world’s poorest people in Asia, Africa, and Latin America. Under pressure from Jubilee campaigns across the globe, the G-8 has acknowledged that measures must be taken to alleviate poor nations’ debt. They’ve put it on the agenda for this summer’s meeting, and the emerging proposal by the US and UK to relieve some debt will help move the debate, but it doesn’t go far enough
