How the United States RIGGED the Global Economy

Globalization, in theory, means the free flow of goods, money, and ideas around the world. In practice, its rules are set to benefit powerful nations like the United States. Over the last 75 years, the United States has rigged the global economy to guarantee its dominance. 

In a secret conversation recorded in the Oval Office in 1974, Secretary of State Henry Kissinger described this project in striking detail: “The trick is to use economics to build a world political structure.” 

In Episode #5 of “The International,” a world-spanning video series brought to you by Jacobin and the @ProgIntl, David Adler (co-General Coordinator of the Progressive International) tells the story of the US plot for global economic supremacy in four simple chapters. 

Jacobin is a leading voice of the American left, offering socialist perspectives on politics, economics, and culture. Find out more at
