Producer: Les Productions du Lagon / Director: Jean-Pierre Carlon

Long dependent on the World Bank and the IMF, Africa today finds itself crippled by its foreign debt and remains a continent of great poverty.

Why today do countries such as the Democratic Republic of Congo, the Republic of Congo and Mali so rich in natural resources remain the poorest on the planet? Why is an important share of their budget still used to service debt? Based on clear state of affairs, and thanks to the analysis of renowned experts, The wages of debt explores the reasons behind these failures and deciphers the workings at play, leading us from Washington to Kinshasa taking in Paris, Brussels and Geneva along the way.
