Disaster Capitalism: Outsourcing Violence and Exploitation | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED

Disaster Capitalism: Outsourcing Violence and Exploitation

In essence, predatory corporations (which usually keep a low profile) are financed by government money (that is, your taxes), supported by tax concessions and insulated from genuine accountability, political criticism and media scrutiny while being given enormous power to provide the infrastructure and labor to conduct a function, domestically or internationally, which has previously been performed by a government or international organization. If this happens at the expense of a nation truly exercising its independence, then too bad.

Moreover, because the corporate function is being performed 'solely to benefit international shareholders' which means that maximum profit is the primary aim, both the people who are supposedly being served by the corporation (citizens, refugees, prisoners...) and the corporation's own employees are invariably subjected to far greater levels of abuse, exploitation, violence and/or corruption than they would have experienced under a public service equivalent.
