Capitalism has been analysed to death in academia and elsewhere. Thus we know that capitalism is structurally conducive to exploitation, to the production and reproduction of class-based inequality, to the degradation of nature, and so on. Such analysis is of capitalism at its purist.
Marginalised is the plunder. Widely acknowledged is the historical plunder that generated capital for the takeoff. But when booty from brutal early colonialism, the slave trade and from enclosure of the commons feeds into capitalist mining, manufacture and agriculture, the naked plunder doesn’t cease.
My interest in this seeming side issue has developed since 2000 when I heard from my first bank victim after he had read an academic article of mine on farmer finance.
