Rogue Economics


With the precision of an economist and the narrative deftness of a storyteller, syndicated journalist Loretta Napoleoni examines how the world is being reshaped by dark economic forces, creating victims out of millions of ordinary people whose lives have become trapped inside a fantasy world of consumerism. Rogue Economics reveals the architecture of our world, and in doing so provides fresh insight into many of the most insoluble problems of our era.

Praise for Rogue Economics

Loretta Napoleoni's devilishly enjoyable journey into the money veins of the new global order—from sex slavery to fad-diet slaver—is truly incredibly original.”

Greg Palast, author of The Best Democracy Money Can Buy

Rogue Economics offers a fascinating view of how terribly wrong things have gone.”

John Perkins, author of Confessions of an Economic Hit Man

“Timely and fascinating, Napoleoni's top-notch reporting, in which her attention turns from Viagra to blood diamonds to the banana price wars in a few pages, works in the vein of Freakonomics, and Eric Schlosser's Fast Food Nation, but much grimmer.”
