This will make you think twice about the chocolate and fruits that you usually buy and about where your clothes come from and how they were produced. I cannot imagine anyone remaining unaffected by this book. Mar 08, Mario the lone bookwolf rated it really liked it Shelves: 0-social-criticism. The fatal thing is that even some biotech and fair trade companies are subsidiaries of the multinationals and thus consume so little.
Please note that I put the original German text at the end of this review. Just if you might be interested. How can an ordinary earner implement a transition to well-traded, sustainably-produced products away from food and clothing? Discovering electrical appliances, furniture, automobiles, medicines, fuels, gas, everyday necessities, and much more without any trac The fatal thing is that even some biotech and fair trade companies are subsidiaries of the multinationals and thus consume so little.
Discovering electrical appliances, furniture, automobiles, medicines, fuels, gas, everyday necessities, and much more without any trace of exploitation borders on an impossibility as soon as more than 1 or 2 raw materials are involved in a production. As the authors emphasize, they have never been threatened or pressurized by any of the corporations since the publication of the first edition a few years ago.
This is to be regarded as an indirect admission of guilt, because why else should the shyness of generating media echo be so great if it were not to prove facts. It is possible to roughly divide the companies described and the particular capital increase techniques in the pharmaceutical, petrol, food, financial, textile and electrical industries. Where the methods are usually the same, which is particularly evident in the company portraits and proven ethically questionable actions.
The pharmaceutical industry is conducting illegal placebo studies with critically ill patients, trying to sue developing countries for patent infringement of AIDS and malaria medications, concealing the better or equal efficacy of cheaper generics to sell private labels better. It has damaged hundreds of millions of healthcare systems, sometimes running fatal drug trials in the third world, and tends to sell lethal or ineffective drugs. Oil companies leave rotting infrastructure unfixed in assisted areas to save costs.
The indigenous people are angry because of unnecessary explosions and oil spills, are then referred to as alleged acts of sabotage guerrillas and then murdered by death squads. They finance, promote and create civil wars, genocide and war crimes and, incidentally, contaminate air, water and earth sustainably.
Food companies are keeping commodity prices pretty low, leading to increasingly bitter haggling of shoppers, minimum wages for plantation workers, child labor, and slave labor. In addition to the poisoning of partially sprayed during the harvest of aircraft with pesticides and herbicides workers, monocultures and irreversible destruction of unique ecosystems. The banking, stock exchange and insurance sectors are in the forefront. The textile industry is moving from country to country in search of ever-cheaper production bargains, with China's non-union ultra prohibiting unionization.
Workers are exposed to toxic chemicals without respiratory protection or protective clothing, there are no benefits or insurance, and extreme wage dumping is the rule. For food and lodging, workers are sometimes charged more than they earn, which causes them to become more and more in debt. Months of work from early on are late in jail-locked, locked sweatshops, which burn down frequently and claim hundreds of deaths, which is nothing out of the ordinary such as violence, child labor, and sexual abuse.
The electronics industry is actively involved in nuclear power plants in crisis areas, is engaged in ecologically highly controversial large-scale projects and does not care much about the origins of their raw materials.
What all these companies have in common is that they invest heavily in image campaigns and social projects that do nothing to change the face of the devastation they inflict, and lull the blue from the sky in their sustainability and ethics promises. Frightening is the various lobby organizations and the noble goals that they have set on their flags and written in their agendas.
Based on the company portraits and lobbying descriptions at the end of the book, the authors illustrate the concentrated power of unleashed capital and make it difficult to face the future with such overwhelming advocacy and corporations with confidence and optimism. Das Fatale ist, dass auch etliche Bio- und Fairtradefirmen Tochterkonzerne der Multis sind und kritisches konsumieren somit wenig bewirkt. Wie kann ein Normalverdiener einen Umstieg auf gerecht gehandelte, nachhaltig erzeugte Produkte abseits von Lebensmitteln und Kleidung umsetzen?
Man kann die beschriebenen Konzerne und die jeweiligen Kapitalmehrungstechniken grob in Pharma-, Petro-, Lebensmittel-, Finanz-, Textil- und Elektrobranche aufteilen. Arbeiter werden giftigen Chemikalien ohne Atemschutz oder Schutzkleidung ausgesetzt, Sozialleistungen oder Versicherungen gibt es nicht und extremes Lohndumping ist die Regel.

Dabei ist es genau andersrum, auch wenn das anstrengend ist und praktisch bei jedem Pupseinkauf zum Nachdenken zwingt. Es gibt halt kein leichtes Leben im Falschen. Oct 15, quasiabsolut rated it it was ok. Yes, this is true. But before you change the world, you may need to change yourself! The first thing to do, if you really want to change youself, is to know: to know what's wrong in what we do, to know what's wrong in the society we live in, to know what is hidden behind the products we find on supermarkets' shelves, So if you want to read this book, you'd better forget the trust you have in all the trademarks, and, after reading, you won't be able to avoid changing yourself, to change maybe, one day the world.
