Vulture capitalism is the ideology of our age, supported by the vast bulk of the political and media elites. The corporation has become more powerful than the state. And yet its work is often done by stealth. Privatised war and outsourced detention centres. Mining companies pillaging precious land in developing countries. Struggling nations invaded by NGOs and the corporate dollar.
From 17 August to 15 September 2013, The Addison Road Community Centre will present a range of films, music, discussions, art and public engagement on vulture capitalism. Profits of Doom month will open with the launch of bestselling journalist Antony Loewenstein’s new book Profits of Doom: How Vulture Capitalism is Swallowing the World and his accompanying photo exhibition. Loewenstein has travelled to Afghanistan, Pakistan, Haiti, Papua New Guinea and across Australia to reveal the reality of the largely hidden world of vulture capitalism. Who is involved and why? Can it be stopped? What are the alternatives in a globalised world?
Information about Profits of Doom month and the range of planned activities will be released via www.arcco.org.au
