Six Bridges Book Festival: Bart Elmore
Country Capitalism: How Corporations from the American South Remade Our Economy and the Planet travels the rural roads running through the American South that led to our planet-changing global economy. Bart Elmore uses the histories of five Southern firms—Coca-Cola, Delta Airlines, Walmart, FedEx, and Bank of America—to investigate the environmental impact of our have-it-now, fly-by-night, buy-on-credit economy. Drawing on exclusive interviews with company executives, corporate archives, and other records, Elmore explores the historical, economic, and ecological conditions that gave rise to these five trailblazing corporations.
