Describes a world where the economy's collateral damage includes oil spills and the poisoning of developing nations' working poor; the low wages and illegal labour practices of corporations leading to the ultimate collapse of a system based on minimizing costs, high volume sales and low profit margins; and a world where debt is the cornerstone of the economy.
