Disaster Capitalism: Making a Killing Out of Catastrophe

by Antony Loewenstein
£9.99   paperback  Verso Books (2017)

Disaster Capitalism: Making a Killing Out of Catastrophe by Antony Loewenstein How Capitalism makes a fortune from disaster, poverty and catastrophe.
 
Disaster has become big business. Best-selling journalist Antony Loewenstein trav­els across Afghanistan, Pakistan, Haiti, Papua New Guinea, the United States, Britain, Greece, and Australia to witness the reality of disaster capitalism. He discovers how companies cash in on or­ganized misery in a hidden world of privatized detention centers, militarized private security, aid profiteering, and destructive mining.
 
What emerges through Loewenstein’s re­porting is a dark history of multinational corpo­rations that, with the aid of media and political elites, have grown more powerful than national governments. In the twenty-first century, the vulnerable have become the world’s most valu­able commodity.
