Indeed, throughout the past five years, Francis has made a point of critiquing income inequality, global capitalism, and its effects on humankind and the environment.

At the turn of the millennium, two very different 'world-views' were published, viz Capitalism in Crisis, by Fidel Castro, and The Crisis of Global Capitalism, by George Soros.

And this new global capitalism functions even better if its political supplement relies on so-called 'Asian values'. Global capitalism has no problem in accommodating itself to a plurality of local religions, cultures, traditions.

Global capitalism's dense entanglements find a way to implicate everyone, eventually. Giant factories in the United States today can sometimes feel like ghosts. The cheap goods that they used to create still appear on shelves, even if they're now coming from Mexico or Taiwan. Many of the cities that were ...
By 2014, he had summed up the systemic character of West-versus-Rest exploitation, with a strong institutional focus, and drawing on the finest structural (including Marxist) critiques of global capitalism.
