Abstract

[The global economy does not serve, sustain, or provision any society, but erodes solidarity and community and exposes people to precarious livelihoods. I review the ethnographic findings of these chapters, all of which point to the increasing polarisation of wealth as the capitalist class transfers value from its producers to itself, thereby creating deindustrialized zones across the world. The question for anthropologists is whether we want to serve solidarity in a war between classes or perpetuate illusions to serve the capitalist class. I discuss how these issues are also playing out in the United States and review the ethnographic findings on the papers of this volume.]
