Ganglife in Karachi / Chinese capital in Southern Africa

Ganglife in Karachi / Chinese capital in Southern Africa

Journalist Matthieu Aikins explores the intersection of crime and politics in Karachi - where gangs fight for territory and revenue, backed by political parties and targeted by a military crackdown - and explains the stresses of violence and corruption on democracy and daily life in a rapidly growing metropolis.

The Radical Pessimist, Kevan Harris explains why Chinese state-owned enterprise involvement in Southern Africa's extraction and infrastructure industries doesn't fit traditional leftist narratives (good or bad), what South-South transactions mean for African economies and global politics, and why our current blob theory of neoliberalism blinds us from seeing economic change.
