Antony, the author of Disaster Capitalism: Making a Killing Out Of A Catastrophe, was my guest on today’s show. Anthony is an Australian journalist who has spent years visiting and reporting on places all around the world where disaster capitalism has run rampant, everywhere from Papua New Guinea and Haiti to the UK and his own country Australia – who became the first country to completely outsource their immigration department. We covered the impacts of disaster capitalism, immigration, how communities have resisted the immense power of multinational corporations and much, much more.
