10/20/18 Martha Mundy Gives an Update on Yemen

Martha Mundy talks about the ongoing war in Yemen, with a particular focus on some of the more barbaric Coalition tactics, including the deliberate bombing of humanitarian and agricultural targets. Scott explains some of the United States and IMF policies that led to Yemen replacing many food crops with cash crops, which they could sell to Saudi Arabia and the rest of the U.S., which of course is a sensible policy until those countries start deliberately blockading you. These and dozens of other policies have contributed to the current crisis, all of which the American media seems bent on not mentioning.

Discussed on the show:

Martha Mundy is a professor emeritus of anthropology at the London School of Economics and the author of Governing Property, Making the Modern State: Law, Administration and Production in Ottoman Syria.
