From Democracy NOW! in the USA:
We speak with NYU professor Greg Grandin about his new book, Fordlandia: The Rise and Fall of Henry Ford’s Forgotten Jungle City. The book tells the story of Henry Ford, the richest man in the world in the 1920s, and his attempt to build a rubber plantation and a miniature Midwest factory town deep in the heart of the Brazilian Amazon.
This video is the sequel.
Henry Ford’s anti-Semitism is notorious.
‘THE FAILURE OF HENRY FORD’S UTOPIA IN THE AMAZON’ “In the 1920s the US industrialist wanted to found a city based on the values that made his company a success — while, of course, producing cheap rubber. The jungle city that bore his name ended up one of his biggest failures.” [The Guardian]
