Summary
Of the world's 100 largest economies, 51 are now corporations, only 49 are nation-states. Yet few of us are aware of the growing dominance of big business: newspapers continue to place the actions of governments on the front page, with business news relegated to the inside pages. But do governments really have more influence over our lives than businesses? Do the parties for which we vote have any real freedom of choice in their actions? This book provides a new take on the way we live now and who really governs us. Socio-economist Hertz reveals how corporations across the world manipulate and pressure governments by means both legal and illegal; how protest is often becoming a more effective political weapon than the ballot-box; and how corporations in many parts of the world are taking over from the state responsibility for everything from providing technology for schools to healthcare for the community.--From publisher description
