How does transnational capital function? Where does it operate? What globalised logic does it follow? What is the magnitude of its abuses and its social, economic and environmental irresponsibility? And what challenge do we see emerge for us, the people?
This special edition of ALAI’s “Latin America in Movement” magazine examines in great detail how transnational capital functions: the sectors it operates in, the globalised logic it follows, the structure of its promiscuous relations with public authorities at all levels, the magnitude of its abuses and its social, economic and environmental irresponsibility. In the following pages, the scope of its power and the challenge we, the people, have before us emerge very clearly.
