It’s a bird..It’s a plane…No it’s DEBT.

People who have worked on these issues for many years have frequently arrived at the conclusion that debt is not a financial or an economic problem at all but in every way a political one. It is the best instrument of power and control of North over South [and now East] ever invented; far superior to colonialism which requires an army, a public administration and attracts a bad press. Control through debt not only requires no infrastructure but actually makes people pay for their own oppression.

— Susan George, The Global Citizens Movement: A New Actor For a New Politics, 30 August 2001
