How globalization enables capitalism to hide its attacks on land and labor.


Corporations since the 1970s have organized, and lobbied, and used power in very blunt ways in order repeal the labor regulations and the environmental regulations that Americans demanded through the 20th century.

Historian Erik Loomis explains how corporate power escaped half a century of regulations demanded by American people, and has spent decades recreating early 20th century working conditions in countries around the world.

Erik is author of the book Out of Sight: The Long and Disturbing Story of Corporations Outsourcing Catastrophe available now from The New Press.
