Antony Loewenstein's new book on "Vulture Capitalism" will be launched at that well-known centre of literary excellence, the Addison Road Community Centre.
The event is sponsored by Reverse Garbage. Honestly, this is too easy...
Vulture capitalism has seen the corporation become more powerful than the state. And yet its work is often done by stealth, supported by political and media elites. The result is privatised wars and outsourced detention centres. Mining companies pillage precious land in developing countries. Struggling nations are invaded by NGOs and the corporate dollar.When dollars invade!
As his site history shows (in no less than 500 places), Antony is desperately attempting to make "Vulture Capitalism" a term for which he is given credit.
Unfortunately, just as Fetch isn't going to happen, neither is Antony's attempt. You see, the term "Vulture Capitalism" has existed in another meaning for over a decade and Antony didn't bother doing his research before he started writing. What's new?
