"Rogue economics" as economist Napoleoni formulates it here, is what happens in times of rapid large-scale political and social transformation when politics can lose control of economics, which then gets captured by dark forces. The first example she cites is the collapse of communism, the spread of democracy and globalization, and the intricately linked spread of slavery around the world such that it has now become an integral part of global capitalism. Other topics she addresses as she tours the world of rogue economics include Europe's sex trade industry, terrorism financing (which she also explored earlier in Terror Inc., and the US subprime mortgage meltdown.
