DescriptionThird World countries are giving the West more in debt repayments than the West gives them in aid. A MATTER OF INTEREST uses clear and imaginative animation to explores the complex and seemingly distant problem of international debt. It looks at historical and economic factors, including the roles played by the banks, the International Monetary Fund, and the governments of debtor countries. It shows the crippling effect that repayment is having on economies, the environment, ordinary people and their traditional ways of life.
