Titel: Capitalism a ghost story
From the poisoned rivers, barren wells, and clear cut forests, to the millions of farmers who have committed suicide to escape micro-credit debt, and of the hundreds of millions of people who live on less than two dollars a day, there are ghosts nearly everywhere you look in India. India is a nation of 1.2 billion, but the countries 100 richest people own assets equivalent to one-fourth of the countries gross domestic product. 'Capitalism: A Ghost Story' examines the dark side of democracy in contemporary India; and shows how the demands of globalized capitalism has subjugated billions of people to the highest and most intense forms of racism and exploitation.Arundhati Roy calls on the victims of capitalism to rise up and scare these ghosts away.
