My how the world has changed! People are not as self sufficient as they used to be.

Origins of the IMF & World Bank ...

The NFB has a film that adequately explains the initial origins of the modern UN (and its many agencies) and the World Bank & IMF.

Lorne Green is the narrator for the above film: it is some of his best film narration work (he did a lot during the war besides his CBC work).

I guess the tragedy of the NFB film is how good things can go bad.
