Forever Under Construction

Closer to home

Posted in Books, Globalization by homeyra on February 8, 2009

Hi all. I am back home since a while but not much in the blogging mode! I thank everyone of you who kept visiting, I missed you all.

Just a short note to bring to your attention a book I came across recently and its author.

mc-mafia

Crimes without frontier

McMafia, or how the fifth of earth economy is managed. Misha Glenny is a former BBC world correspondent . Listen to him or read an excerpt here.

Reviews: NYT, Wiseguys and Fall Guys, Welcome to Globalization
Guardian, The organised global pillage

This was not global jihad. Its roots are far closer to home.

    Even before clicking the links, I can tell this guy’s on the subject… and so few are… too busy gossiping about the outrageousness involved in bringing about global fascism, documenting it all down to a gnat’s eyelash, to look up and see the bullet train about to mow them down.
