Empires of Profit

Empires of Profit: Commerce, Conquest and Corporate Responsibility by Daniel B. Litvin

Empires of Profit tells a series of dramatic stories to illustrate the greed, benevolence, and ignorance of western business in the developing world. The stories – which are at times a shocking reminder of the origins of the present-day anti-capitalist movement – illustrate the extremely delicate and volatile nature of western involvement in the developing world. The message that emerges is clear: unless the lessons of the past are heeded – and corporate social responsibility taken seriously – the current wave of investment will be far less secure than most corporations believe.
