The institutions that are driving the worldwide neoliberal economic agenda speak of their activities as "development" designed to increase "prosperity" through "economic growth." The well-groomed proponents of these activities speak of their plans and projects in modulated tones of civility in the conference rooms of elegant hotels, while leaving in their wake a worldwide trail of misery, blood, and pollution. The way for this development is opened by coercion, and is meeting increasing and often desperate resistance from millions suffering under these tender ministrations. A growing number of critics, mostly silenced from the mainstream venues of discourse, are articulating an understanding of this development model as global gangsterism.
