Nobodies: Modern American Slave Labor and the Dark Side of the New Global Economy, Bowe, John
1 Bowe, JohnNobodies: Modern American Slave Labor and the Dark Side of the New Global Economy
New York Random House 2007 1400062098 / 9781400062096 First Edition Hardcover Fine Fine 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall 
First printing. 304 pages. Bibliography, Notes, Index. The author, an award-winning journalist, "exposes the outsourcing, corporate chicanery, immigration fraud, and sleights of hand that allow forced labor to continue in the United States while the rest of us notice nothing but the everyday low price at the checkout counter." Three different workplaces featuring slave labor are described. Underpaid illegal immigrants in Immokalee, Florida, pick produce that supplies such companies as Tropicana and PepsiCo. A company in Tulsa imported workers from India under false pretenses, destroyed their documents and used them to replace American workers. In Saipan, garment factories supplying companies such as Target and Gap employ mostly women who are overworked and underpaid. An important reminder of the dark side of global economic forces. ~~ In clear archival cover.

Grunch of Giants, Fuller, R. Buckminster;  Applewhite, E. J.
2 Fuller, R. Buckminster; Applewhite, E. J.Grunch of Giants
New York St. Martin's Press 1983 0312351933 / 9780312351939 First Edition Hard Cover Fine Fine 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall 
First printing. Quarterbound in grey cloth with blue boards and gilt spine titling. Dust jacket drawing by R. Buckminster Fuller. 98 pages. Index. Book is in fine condition and appears unread. Dust jacket is also fine, crisp. ~~ 'Grunch' stands for 'Gross Universal Cash Heist.' In this sequel to 'Critical Path,' Fuller traces the evolution of multinational corporations from the post-World War II military-industrial complex to the current world economic crisis. He claims that as these economic giants grow beyond the control of the national political units, they threaten bankruptcy of the U.S. and the collapse of the world economic system, "perhaps signaling the emergence of a new form of political and economic organization for the beleaguered inhabitants of Spaceship Earth." Written 25 years ago, just before his death, Fuller's chilling prophesy seems to be coming true. ~~ In clear archival cover. A perfect first edition copy.
