Un autre artiste (Alain Lefèvre) qui s'improvise économiste et qui ne manque pas de souligner à quel point la méchante mondialisation est responsable de créer du chômage ici, tout en exploitant ailleurs (femmes et enfants de préférence).

Vive la tyrannie de la pénitence…

Je deviens de plus en plus allergique à ce discours démagogique et manichéen d'une certaine nomenklatura. Voici ce qu'ils ne disent jamais sur la mondialisation et le capitalisme:

Private schools for the poor and the new frontier for investors

What the research teams found points to an educational revolution that is taking place. In the poor urban and peri-urban areas surveyed, the vast majority of children were found to be in ‘budget’ private schools. For instance, in the poor urban and peri-urban areas of Lagos State, Nigeria, 75 percent of schoolchildren were in private schools. In the peri-urban district of Ga, Ghana, the figure was 64 percent, while in the slums of Hyderabad, India, 65 percent of schoolchildren were in private unaided schools. […]

Private schools for the poor are burgeoning across the developing world. In urban and peri-urban areas they are serving the majority of poor schoolchildren. Their quality is higher than government schools provided for the poor – perhaps not surprisingly given that they are predominantly businesses dependent on fee income to survive, and hence accountable to parental needs. Those worried about how to extend access to education for the poor, could usefully look to the private education sector as a way forward. […]

Crucially, because the private schools serving the poor are businesses, making a reasonable profit, they provide a pioneering way forward for investors to get involved too. […]

Providing investment for innovation in curriculum and learning, which, if successful, could be rolled out on a commercial basis, provides a second possibility. And investing in a chain of schools – either through a dedicated education investment fund or through joint ventures with educational entrepreneurs – could help solve the information problem for poor parents and improve the educational opportunities on offer. The Searchers who have created private schools serving the poor are hungry for investment; investors can assist them in pursuing their central role in providing quality ‘education for all’.

Non, le capitalisme n'est pas la solution à tous les problèmes, pas plus que le capitalisme est la cause de tous les maux. Ce que je dis c'est que capitalisme et mondialisation peuvent faire partie de la solution.
