Shuttled around the world in private limousines and welcomed
to corporate offices atop gleaming towers, we are
treated to a litany of explanations by people close to the
action, outlining how the financial world works and where
it stands. It is unsurprising for many to learn that capitalism
is ruthless. More alarming is the degree to which the
financial (ad)ventures of an unaccountable and often invisible
few are facilitated by public policies and monies
and arcane schemes that drain vast quantities of wealth
away from civilizations into private hands. In settings
across the globe, the legacies of decades of relaxed
credit, deregulation of markets, and privatization of public
facilities are illustrated by concrete examples. The testimonies
of economic theorists, proponents of offshore tax
havens, and even one "economic hit man" combine to
create a portrait of high stakes and shortsightedness, with
war, mass migration, and ecological disaster as only a
few of the downsides.
