Listening to Arundhati Roy's Capitalism: A Ghost Story was one of those experiences where you constantly find your mouth agape and brow furrowed in that "how-can-this-be" kind of way, reeling again and again over the ways in which Roy depicts the suffering and destruction that unchecked capitalism has wrought upon her country of India. The over extension of India's natural resources has resulted in total ecological obliteration – dead rivers, empty wells and stripped forests – and the imbalance of wealth and power has led to immense human devastation, with over 250,000 farmers committing suicide to escape crushing debt. But grisly statistics aside, it's Roy's unyielding courage in reporting these facts and condemning the powers-that-be which make this an essential listen.
