Capitalism: A Ghost Story by Arundhati Roy

Capitalism: A Ghost Story

by Arundhati Roy

Rockefeller to Mandela, Vedanta to Anna Hazare…. How long can the cardinals of corporate gospel buy up our protests?

‘Arundhati Roy’s latest essay, entitled “Capitalism’s Ghosts” published in Outlook Magazine last week, is a magisterial analysis of India’s status in the world today. Her forensic detail and verifiable conclusions demonstrate how the nexus of the Indian ‘Lords of Capital’ are raping her land of its resources, forcibly removing her indigenous communities from land they have sustained respectfully for centuries, influencing politicians and courts and, through corporate ‘philanthropy’, having a profound impact on the development of the arts, science and culture. It is essential reading.’
Dr Felix Padel, 26th April 2012

  2. i do belive in socialism but when it comes to the other norms of society it’s like a mutated alien ,even the bishops of socialisam love to stand on it’s sacrophagus where its gospel is written , what arundhathi told is a fact which feared to tell by masses in its full avatar.It just can’t make an inferno of emotions but a fire in some hearts in relative distincint corners of this contry ,someone like me..i like capatilisam till it doesnt bites me back, but unfortunately it already did ,reflected in form of inflation and heavey price rise
