People, Development and IFI’s

in an article published by Diane Elson in the Review of International Political in 1994 she discusses the concept of people centered development vs. money centered development and the extent to which money centered approaches have infiltrated the ruling institutions of global governance. The objective should be to place “money at the service of people, rather than people at the service of money” and to “put sand into the wheels of markets”. that sounds to me like a compelling framework for a new system of global governance.
