No matter where we live in the world, rogue economics is reshaping our personal lives. It is a product of the eternal battle between politics and economics, and nothing less than the price humanity pays for progress. What do Eastern Europe's booming sex trade, America's subprime mortgage lending scandal, China's fake goods industry and celebrity philanthropy in Africa have in common? All over the world political upheaval, free trade, deregulated financial markets and the internet have created conditions in which unscrupulous entrepreneurs trade without restriction. With bio-pirates trolling the blood industry and games like World of Warcraft spawning online sweatshops, rogue industries are being allowed to transmute into global empires. Syndicated journalist and international finance expert Loretta Napoleoni examines how the world is being reshaped by dark economic forces, creating victims out of millions of ordinary people whose lives have become trapped inside a fantasy world of consumerism. ROGUE ECONOMICS reveals the hidden architecture of our world, and provides fresh insight into many of the most insoluble problems of our era.
