    Abstract

    This chapter examines the activities of the British Aluminium Company (BACo) in the Scottish Highlands, linking this to their upstream operations in the British colony of the Gold Coast (present-day Ghana). This is viewed against the politics of development in this peripheralised region, and one in which government historically viewed as problematic. It explores both the character of that corporate social action and political activity, and their networks and relationships with key social actors in the region. It also denotes and illustrates the importance of the operation of ‘moral economy’ to shaping the company’s strategies in the area. This is linked to their wider lobbying in Whitehall.
