some sections of the middle-class around

Employees have over the years suffered
a major setback in their quest for economic
development, social status and real independence.
There has also been a significant and
steady erosion of a large portion of the
employee base that have either quit in

mainstream paradigms of development are
in serious crisis. In this period most
people have little desire to return to
the state-assisted protectionist, communist
or socialist regimes, whose promotion
of growth and attainment of economic sovereignty
were accompanied, in most cases, by economic
inequalities, inefficiency, corruption
and ecological degradation. Yet, radical

and experimentation with structural adjustment

Fund (IMF) and the World Bank have crippled
the state as an agent of development and
