In 1991, chief econ omist for the World Bank, Lawrence Summers, signed an internal memo that encouraged the bank to promote the migration of the “dirty industries” to the less developed nations.� Summers’s rationale was that since the workers in those nations earned far less than workers in the developed nations, the health problems and deaths they would endure from those “dirty industries“ would be less costly than the misery and death that would be inflicted on the industrialized world’s workers.� The memo stated: “the economic logic behind dumping a load of toxic waste in the lowest-wage country is impeccable and we should face up to that.” [364] � The memo was eventually leaked, to widespread public condemnation.� What kind of public disgrace and career scuttling did Summers endure?� In 1999, Bill Clinton promoted him to be the U.

After the Roman conquest of the Iberian peninsula the Vulgar Latin replaced virtually all local languages. Clair, invaded the Ohio River Valley and was trounced by a smaller contingent of native warriors in present day Ohio, not far from Dayton.� That defeat saw the greatest proportional casualties that the American army ever suffered.� Washington, sobered by the disaster, was able to commit more than a million dollars, a large sum in those days, to making the American military more formidable. [156] � With in a few years, the American conquest of the upper Ohio River Valley was complete, with the Battle of Fallen Timbers won in 1794 and the Greenville Treaty signed in 1795, which the USA violated in short order, as future president William Henry Harrison led the swindle of the natives.
