Capitalism's New Reality
Courtesy of Publishers Group Canada
Economist and syndicated journalist Loretta Napoleoni argues that the world is undergoing rapid and unexpected great transformations fuelled by what she calls rogue economics.
Eagerly awaited around the world (translation rights have already been sold throughout Europe, Latin America, and Southeast Asia), Napoleoni's account is based on top-to-bottom primary-source interviews from banking executives in New York to Russian prostitutes to London morgue workers, and grounded in the author's personal experience in international finance.
From Eastern Europe's booming sex trade industry to China's "online sweatshops," from al-Qaeda's underwriters to America's subprime mortgage lending scandal, Rogue Economics exposes the paradoxical economic connections of the new global marketplace.
