Inhaltsangabe: 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.
Rezension: "This is a 'must-read' book--a searing indictment of an unjust international economic order, not by a wild-eyed idealistic left-winger, but by a sober scion of the establishment with impeccable credentials. It left me devastated but also very hopeful. Something can be done to create a more just economic order."--Archbishop Desmond M. Tutu, Nobel Peace Laureate "Should be high on the list of 'must-read' books for even the busiest corporate executive."--The Financial Times (London) "Building on the electrifying, bestselling first edition of When Corporations Rule the World, this new edition expands and updates Korten's laser-like analysis of how global corporations dominate people and their governments, and the miserable conditions that result when the few rule the many. Korten then shows practical pathways to a realizable future of more just, prosperous, and sustainable societies. This book will agitate your mind, elevate your soul, and engage your civic spirit." --Ralph Nader "If you can read only one book on how to address the enormous challenges of our time, this is it.... Korten weaves together a devastating critique of the tyranny of the global economy with an arsenal of well-argued alternatives to offer an empowering agenda for change."--John Cavanagh, Fellow, Institute for Policy Studies and coauthor of Global Dreams "If you work in a business, or know someone who does, this book is required reading. Korten defines the business agenda for the next 20 years, and he does it thoughtfully and from the heart."--Peter Block, author of Stewardship and The Empowered Manager "Required reading for women who want to peek behind the curtain of the global economy and figure out how to save ourselves and respond to the global SOS."--Bella Abzug, Co-Chair, Women's Environment & Development Organization "When Corporations Rule the World is an absolutely indispensable guide to the new world economy. It is a learned, courageous, and ultimately hopeful book. It provides a blueprint for the process of economic reformation which is essential for the recovery of sovereignty, community, and a right relation to the natural world."--Resurgence "If every corporate leader who believes implicitly that consumerism is the path to happiness (and that rampant development is the road to global prosperity) were to read When Corporations Rule the World with an open mind, that world just might have a chance of becoming a better place for us all."--Toronto Globe and Mail "Korten's mixture of acute observation, common-sense practicality and vigorous idealism may open more than a few minds."--The New Internationalist "A clear-eyed, rational critique... Korten's book deserves a large readership."--Academy of Management Review
