Uninformed foreign personnel

E+Z/D+C 2/2009, S. 82f.

I was delighted to read the “response to criticism” by Zafrullah Chowdhury und Rafiqul Chaudhury. This came at a time when the grip by uninformed foreign personnel has become tighter still after the notorious imposition of structural adjustment and globalisation by IMF, World Bank and their lackeys who wield considerable power. These children of European Renaissance have moved far away from scientific approaches. The leaders of Gonoshasthaya Kendra, however, made excellent suggestions for research.
