When Corporations Rule The World

Our Choice: Democracy or Corporate Rule A handful of corporations and financial institutions command an ever-greater concentration of economic and political power in an assault against markets, democracy, and life. It's a “suicide economy,” says David Korten, that destroys the very foundations of its own existence. The bestselling 1995 edition of When Corporations Rule the World helped launch a global resistance against corporate domination. In this twentieth-anniversary edition, Korten shares insights from his personal experience as a participant in the growing movement for a New Economy. A new introduction documents the further concentration of wealth and corporate power since 1995 and explores why our institutions resolutely resist even modest reform. A new conclusion chapter outlines high-leverage opportunities for breakthrough change. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Probably one of the most important books of our time. Truly a masterpiece. While the title fits the theme, this book covers a lot of ground equally maneuvering between fields of economics, social, justice, and more. New chapters are fantastic and frame the book in and even more relevant context. Few people in the world have the scope of knowledge to both understand and challenge global economic development and assess the of role of governments and civilians in this process. Dr. Korten is without question at the forefront of modern progressive theories and solutions to addressing an global economic model far out of balance with Earth and all living beings on it.

A bit ranty perhaps, but has some great material that will get you thinking about the state of our world.

Brilliant book

explains a lot of how the corporations create poverty and control and illegal immigration
