Publisher's Summary

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," David Korten says, and it destroys the very foundations of its own existence.
The best-selling 1995 edition of When Corporations Rule the World helped launch a global resistance against corporate domination. In this 20th-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.

It all makes sense. Good compilation.

A compilation of Corporatocracy vs common sense. Stay away if you are an MBA, as it is too philosophical and insightful.
