For the past few months, /The Rules, the Oakland Institute and dozens of organisations across the globe have been demanding the end of World Bank’s Doing Business (DB) ranking and Benchmarking the Business of Agriculture (BBA).
These ranking systems reward countries for reducing their labor standards, destroying their environment, and providing easy access for corporate pillaging and land grabs. They create a race-to-the-bottom between countries as they clamor for World Bank investment dollars.
We organized a week of teach-ins across the world from August 9th to 17th to help spread awareness about the World Bank’s dangerous pro-corporate agenda. There will be a further teach in happening in Belgium in October.
