A History of Vampire Capitalism: How the Banks Drain the Blood of the Economy

This is a terrific interview on financialization in history.

There is also a comparative analysis of how value and prosperity have been viewed throughout history. The interviewer gives a nice summing up during the interview. Michael’s work with the Chinese is designed to keep them from getting caught in the trap of financialization.
