Protect your neck! "life & debt" is a MUST-SEE film if you've ever wondered about what the IMF does... i'd recommend it on dvd so you can see the "special features" interview w/michael manley, the former prime minister of jamaica who had to deal with the IMF and their poverty-perpetuating policies.
Life & Debt This is a documentary about the Jamaican enonomic crisis which utilises excerps from Jamaica Kincaid's book "A Small Place", as well as interviews with many affected Jamaicans. It goes into detail about the role that the IMF and World Bank have played in the destruction of the local farming communities, and the restrictions they have imposed which make matters worse and worse. Highly recommened viewing!
