Empty calories of the paper economy

Cannibal Capitalism
Michael Hill

Starving economy

When exploitation overtakes creation, and investing is trampled by gambling with someone else's money, what you have is the modern form of cannibalism that used to be attributed to ‘some isolated South Pacific tribes or certain pre-colonial African cultures'. In truth, the existence of cannibalism among aboriginal peoples has been greatly exaggerated by the conquistadors and other colonialists to justify their aggression, notes Michael Hill in ‘Cannibal Capitalism: How big business and the Feds are ruining America'.
