Devastating Effects

Thank you for publishing Richard Parker's "From Conquistadors to Corporations" (May-June 2002). It is the finest piece I have read on the roots of the growing inequality among the world's nations. As a student of the effects of the Cold War on developing nations and author of articles on East Timor, Zaire and Angola, Mozambique, and Cuba, I especially appreciated Parker's inclusion of U.S. responsibility for the devastating effects on so many poor countries. Parker's contribution is just one more reason why I have found Sojourners among my most important reading for the past 25 years.
