Hedge funds and corporate raiders in Africa: Space invaders of the third kind - Regent Business School
Hedge funds and corporate raiders in Africa: Space invaders of the third kind

Recently, at a Journal Club meeting, we had occasion to read and critically analyse an excerpt from William Dalrymple's new book, The Anarchy: How a Corporation Replaced the Mughal Empire, 1756-1803. The book apparently is expected to be published next year (company-original-corporate-raiders). While the article provided a critical overview of the brutal British exploitative history in India, it alerted the reader to the fact that it was not the British Government per se that was responsible for 'looting' the riches of India, but a corporate named the "East India Company". This does not in any way suggest that Britain can deny its complicity in the 'raiding' of India. Dalrymple poignantly and eloquently reminds the reader of the 'hurt' that is still felt in India when the 'loot' is displayed in the form of artworks or artifacts in a foreign land that was for all intentions and purposes a 'right royal marauder'.
