Description

Enron. Tyco. Arthur Andersen. These companies have turned "corporate" into a four-letter word as headline after headline reveals shocking stories of executives stealing money from investors.But money isn't all that corporations steal. In Corporateering, Jamie Court shows how corporations routinely and quietly rob us of our personal freedoms, including privacy, security, the right to legal recourse, and more. In fact, "corporateering" - the act of prioritizing commercial gain over individual, social, or cultural gain - exists everywhere in our lives, whether we know it or not.With example after example, with tough question after tough question, Court challenges us to look behind the corporate curtain to see the invisible hand that is controlling our lives, and to do something about it. He offers empowering strategies in a playbook on counter-corporateering so we can reclaim our privacy, our right to health and safety, and other personal liberties.show more
