Getting into Debt

Source: Jubilee Debt Campaign

Jubilee Debt Campaign website

What is Third World Debt, how did it come about and why do so many people feel so strongly that it should be dropped? And what does it have to do with the recent financial crisis or the credit crunch?

Complete with illustrations, graphs, cartoons and more, this resource looks at the way the international lending system has made life better for some, but much much worse for many more. And that same lending system is also behind the latest financial crisis which is gripping the whole world.

Surely it has never been so critical to understand the global financial system, how it works, why it needs to be different, in what ways people across the world are trying to change it, and where you fit in?

Produced by Jubilee Debt Campaign with Jubilee Scotland and Methodist Relief and Development Fund.
