Predatory formations

Some of this is old history
economic growth has never been benign
but now we are seeing the making of new predatory formations
a mix of elites and systemic capacities
with finance as key enabler
that push toward acute concentration

Some of this is old history
economic growth has never been benign
but now we are seeing the making of new predatory formations
new forms of an increasingly primitive accumulation
executed through complex operations
threatening a growing number of people and places throughout the world

There was that
and there was this cat
it was an awful day
and I was back home
where it all failed to become familiar

There was that
and there was this cat
it was an awful day
and I was back home
where it all failed to become familiar
beware of predatory formations
