Chapter 24 and Chapter 25 Summary and Analysis

John made a few trips to his beloved Ecuador. The country had fallen victim to the corporatocracy, which exploited oil reserves. Jaime Roldos stood against the corporatocracy. He believed the poor were entitled to basic human rights and that leaders should use natural resources responsibly. He fought hard against the oil companies and its supporters such as the Summer Language Institute, which manipulated native peoples off their oil-rich lands. Roldos wanted to national oil, which threatened large oil companies. He was not anti-American, but his policies threatened American interests. Roldos used oil as a way to bring social reform to the disenfranchised. Texaco, an oil giant, worried that the Hydrocarbons policy would be a model for other countries in the region, which would disrupt business. Roldos continued with his policy. John decided he to would make a stand against the corporatocracy.
