Corporateering: How Corporate Power Steals Your Personal Freedom... And What You Can Do About It (Hardcover):
"'Corporateering: How Corporate Power Steals Your Personal Freedom' is an excellent overview of how the basic political purchase of government by corporations impacts us as citizens.
With 'corporateering,' it's not the quality of your product or its low price that determines your likelihood of succeeding; it's who you know in the government and how much your company does for them -- in campaign contributions and other favors.
James Court, author of 'Corporateering,' concludes this book with several suggestions on how to counter 'corporateering.' He wrote this book a couple of years back, but everything he said is still relevant and much too needed, alas.
Michael Moore penned the introduction to 'Corporateering,' writing, 'If you want to understand the influence of corporate culture on American culture, and the growing power of the corporation to impose its goals on every other sector of society, this is the book to read.'"
