In this video series we interview journalist and author Ernst Wolff. Wolff’s latest book is called “Pillaging the World: The History and Politics of the IMF” which is also available in German and Arabic.

The following questions are addressed in the first part:
What motivated Ernst Wolff to write the book “Pillaging the World: The History and Politics of the IMF“?
Under what context was the International Monetary Fund (IMF) founded?
Why was the International Monetary Fund founded? What role has it played in the past?

What terminology does the IMF employ and is there Orwellianism at play which cloaks its actual practices?
