When Corporations Rule The World Summary

When Corporations Rule The World by David Korten

"When Corporations Rule the World" explains how economic globalization has concentrated the power to govern in global corporations and financial markets and detached them from accountability to the human interest. It documents the devastating human and environmental consequences of the successful efforts of these corporations to reconstruct values and institutions everywhere on the planet to serve their own narrow ends. It also reveals why and how millions of people are acting to reclaim their political and economic power from these elitist forces and presents a policy agenda for restoring democracy and rooting economic power in people and communities. This second edition is expanded to include new information, including a new preface, a new introduction, a new chapter on the global democracy movement, and a new epilogue.
