Disaster by design: How corporations cash in on endless global war.


There needs to be a complete cessation of private intelligence and security forces in warzones, but the truth is that's unlikely to happen in the short term because the US and other Western governments like the idea of paying private interests to do things that they often feel like they can't do themselves - either legal or illegal.

Journalist Antony Loewenstein examines the mechanisms through which corporations both fuel and profit from America's endless wars, from drones and interventions abroad to mass incarceration of prisoners and immigrants at home, and explains how establishment media became compliant to the process by pursuing access to power, not truth about its actions.

Antony is author of Disaster Capitalism: Making a Killing out of Catastrophe from Verso Books.
