Summary
The 1992 Rio Earth Summit was supposed to be a turning point for the World Bank. Environmental concerns would now play a major role in its lendingprograms and projects would go beyond economic development to sustainable development. More than two decades later, efforts to green the bank seem pallid. Bruce Rich argues that the Banks current institutional problems are extensions of flaws that had been present since its founding. His new book,Foreclosing the Future, tells the story of the Bank from the Rio Earth Summit to today. For readers who want the full history of the Banks environmental record, Richs acclaimed 1994 critique,Mortgaging the Earth, is an essential companion. Called a detailed and thought-provoking look at an important subject byThe New York Times,Mortgaging the Earth analyzes the twenty year period leading up the Rio Summit. Rich offers not only an important history but critical insights about economic development that are ever-more relevant today
