The Heart of Darkness: City of London Finance Capital of the World

Many years ago in his study of the history of capitalism, Immanuel Wallerstein wrote that one of the characteristics of a hegemon in decline is that its profits are not made in commerce, technology and manufacturing but on finance and the military. The decline of the Anglo-American empire fits this to a T.  This article details how the City of London is not only ripping off the British public, but it has been the storehouse for capitalist profits from all over the world.
