This comic was done for the September/October 2001 issue of Dollars & Sense magazine. It is the fifth in a series of 2-page comics about economic globalization and neoliberalism. To see the rest of the series, go to The Comic Strip of Neoliberalism. I have had the indispensable assistance of Dollars & Sense editor Alejandro Reuss in shaping this project. On this particular installment I am also indebted for information and ideas to Jack Spence of Hemisphere Initiatives who has been living in Brasilia this year, and Kevin Murray, Maria Aguiar, and Jennifer Lemire of Grassroots International.
Our goal is to collect these 2-pagers into a comic book that can be used as a primer for people interested in the emerging anti-globalization movement. Since this is an ongoing project and these pages are likely to be revised before the comic book version comes out, I am very interested in hearing suggestions from people with knowledge of this subject. Drop me a line.
