About the presentation
The rise of the BRIC (Brazil, Russia, India, China) economies is often acclaimed as a resurgence of capitalist accumulation under neoliberal auspices and a harbinger of better times for the Global South. Yet, their recent growth has been accompanied by one of the biggest land-grabs in the history of the modern world-system.
Millions of people—mostly indigenous people and the agrarian poor—are being deprived of access to land and livelihood.
