Money LoggingGives the portrait of a clan of kleptocrats who through the granting of timber concessions and export licenses have managed to become billionaires“ – Neue Zürcher Zeitung“One of the most comprehensive and brutally honest investigations into the intrigues of the Malaysian and international timber Mafia“ – Süddeutsche Zeitung“A uniue way of life in the rainforests has been destroyed in a single generation Read this book and weep But then get angry“ – Wade Dav What if politicians destroyed a national and international treasure by auctioning the right to do so for the highest bid? Everywhere in the world this happens The uest for money and power knows no end only a means to an end Destroying a pristine rain forest and the people who live there was in this true crime novel the devastating result The author takes us on a journey through the state of Sarawak and profiles the corrupt robber baron Abdul Taib Mahmud a man so in love with wealth and power that he could do no other than to exploit every resource and person within his grasp The author details the struggle in east Asia against corruption and the rape of the environment for the gain of a few This struggle has largely been lost Perhaps you have read a true crime novel where the perpetrator is so opprobrious as to seem to be be novel than true This book reads that way How can a democratic society allow such scrofulous people to drain a society of everything that it has? This book is a manual of how it is doneThis work represents the true nature of capitalism Every resource must be turned into currency by those who have the means to do so Everything that nature has given us is worth exploiting apparently nothing worth saving The next generation may decry what they have been left to exploit; the generation after that will eat pelleted food when available and wonder how the greed and lack of foresight produced 10 billion people that would consume their means
