DOC 02 Mementos of Late Capitalism

Economists still can't seem to let go of the fairy tale of the "trickle down effect", even though it has become painfully obvious over the past 20 years that the only things dripping quietly from on high and pooling at our feet are poverty and lack of perspective. The free play of market forces and the power wielded by oligarchs, dictators and a select group of transnational corporations generate absurd wealth on the one hand and massive disenfranchisement on the other. Alas, the desire for freedom and structural change is slowly – drop by drop – generating its own energy to fuel resistance.
