In this second edition, David Lester supplements his original concise and understaded, yet politically and socially potent catalogue of the injustices of capitalist ideology on the world's indigent people, and the devastating environmental consequences of industrialization. Contains new, reliably sourced gruesome statistical facts about the harsh reality of capitalism's impact on the world that will appall, inspire, and incite.


Open this book to any page and you will discover the dark side of capitalism. It is great people can be innovative and make lots of money for their efforts. However this book chronicles how money, power, and greed go hand-in-hand, and has the facts to back it up. It lists hundreds of examples of how government and corporations have gone too far to strip all of us of our rights, treasures, and resources. It has enough inside of it to make you most concerned of where America is going.
