Vulture capitalism

£20.00

Everything you know about capitalism is wrong. Free markets aren’t really free. Record corporate pro-fits don’t trickle down to everyone else. And we aren’t empowered to make our own choices – they’re made for us every day. In ‘Vulture Capitalism’, journalist Grace Blakeley takes on the world’s most powerful corporations by showing how the causes of our modern crisis are the intended result of our capitalist system. It’s not broken, it’s working exactly as planned. From Amazon to Boeing, Henry Ford to Richard Nixon, Blakeley shows us exactly where late-stage capitalism has gone wrong.
