The Corporation


I did write "Details follow" when telling you about my recent finds at the Ulladulla op-shops, didn't I? Well, here's one of them: the award-winning documentary based on Joel Bakan’s bestseller "The Corporation: The Pathological Pursuit of Profit and Power".

As images of disgraced and handcuffed corporate executives parade across our television screens, pundits, politicians, and business leaders are quick to assure us that greedy and corrupt individuals, not the system as a whole, are to blame for Wall Street's woes. Despite such assurances, citizens today - and many business leaders too - are concerned that the faults within the corporate system run much deeper than a few tremors on Wall Street would indicate because, whichever way you look at it, one WorldCom or one Enron is one too many.

These larger concerns are the focus of this book. A book that was virtually begging to be written, and which is available online at www.archive.org. (SIGN UP - it's free! - then LOG IN and BORROW)
