"Our Choice: Democracy or Corporate Rule. 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," says David Korten, that destroys the very foundations of its own existence. The bestselling 1995 edition of When Corporations Rule the World helped launch a global resistance against corporate domination. In this twentieth-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.".

One of the unfortunate reviewers claims: // such classic conspiracy-theory scapegoats as the Trilateral Commission and Council on Foreign Relations as the planning agents of the new world economic order \\ Odd! I've always thought David Korten too tame in his predictions! FYI to the critic: At the very top, above the CFR is the Group of 30 [group30.org], followed by Bretton Woods Committee [brettonwoods.org], and those the critic mentioned plus others. The Big Four investment firms which appear to be the majority owners of the major corporations in America and Europe are: BlackRock, Vanguard Group, State Street and Fidelity [FMR]. Except BlackRock actually owns State Street, so there are just three! Great book!
