The World Bank published this week its newest World Development Report: 'Mind, Society and Behaviour'.

In a most cynical way, the World Bank now reduces poverty to a 'cognitive tax' that makes it impossible for poor people to think rationally and take adequate decisions. This report gives a 'theoretical' justification for sanctioning the 'non-deserving' poor and implicitly also for repressing resistance. A must-read.

The latest newsletter of Global Social Justice explains what is happening and how this new reasoning is a logical consequence of the World Bank's earlier thinking on poverty and development.
