Paperback
Addresses the issue of modern corporate power, exposing the harmful effects gobalization is having not only on economics, but also on politics, society and the environment. The book documents the devastating consequences as corporations recreate values and institutions to serve their own narrow financial interests, and outlines a strategy for creating localized economies that empower people and communities within a system of global cooperation.

- Publisher In a well reasoned analysis, Korten exposes the harmful effects of economic globalisation, sets out the underlying causes of today's social, environmental and political crisis and outlines a strategy for creating localised economies.

- Publisher Takes a critical look at the corporation and the system within which business functions, and presents the view that the underlying system of business must be transformed to restore power to the small and local. Topics include the growth illusion, rise of corporate power in America, decline of Democratic Pluralism, buying out Democracy, marketing the world, predatory finance, corporate cannibalism, managed competition, the ecological revolution, and an awakened civil society. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
