About this title


This left-wing view of Capitalism explores how the history of the past 500 years of Western Civilization has been driven by a singular obsession: the accumulation of ever-more wealth. This drive has been detrimental to the population at-large, despite the relative comfort the relatively small and shrinking “middle” class experiences, and the opulent luxury the top 1% basks in. Reminiscent of Howard Zinn’s A People History of the United States, Veera’s leftist economic perspective poses a powerful question. What should society’s appropriate response be to: · Pathological greed · An economic coup d’etes of America · The “collateral damage” of Millions of extinct species and vanishing rainforests · The genocide of non-Western civilization and ancient ways of life all in the name of profit · Nazi Capitalism — rotten eggs exploiting the Capitalist system A People’s History of Capitalism is the story of the world Capitalists have built for us, how things came to be this way and what, if anything, we can do about it. Veera shines an unorthodox light on many things you thought you knew about Western Civilization, and a few you probably didn’t. Capitalism has claimed it’s “our way or the highway” for too long now, mercilessly slaughtering every civilization in its path for the past 500 years. Fueled by greed (and petrolium) the Capitalist system may collapse under the weight of its own pyramid schemes or be finished off by the end of cheap oil. The lessons Veera teaches us here are ones we should already know from history, but have forgotten. Understanding them now will prove crucial over next few pivotal years.
