      Rights make might. Ensuring workers’ rights as a strategy for economic growth. by Josh Bivens and Christian Weller. A multitude of pressing issues await the representatives of the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) when they gather for their spring meetings in Washington, D.C. in April.

These results provide some support for the oft-raised “race to the bottom” dynamic regarding global capital and labor rights.
