At the heart of developed societies today lies an insatiable drive for wealth and prosperity. Yet in a world ruled by free market economics, there are both winners and losers. The benefits enjoyed by the privileged few come at the expense of the many. In this book, Stephan Lessenich shows how our wealth and affluence is built overwhelmingly at the expense of those in less developed countries and regions of the world. His theory of 'externalisation' demonstrates how the negative consequences of our lifestyles are directly transferred onto the world's poorest. From the destruction of habitats caused by the massive increase in demand for soy and palm oil to the catastrophic impact of mining, Lessenich shows how the global South has borne the brunt of our success.
