"Life and Debt" thoroughly documents how the US, the WTO, and the IMF have
systematically destroyed Jamaica's economy while showing the effects of
globalization on Jamaican industry and agriculture.

The US didn't abolish slavery in the 19th century; they simply outsourced it.
Take a look inside the Kingston Free Zone and you'll see the slaves still at
work. Visit a Jamaican banana plantation and learn about how the economy of a
sovereign nation was subjugated in the name of "free trade."
