The Corporation - Joel Bakan

Review of: The Corporation: The Pathological Pursuit of Profit and Power by Joel Bakan

I think this should be required reading for all citizens.

Exposes (without ideological idealism) the facts about corporations. Most people have vague misgivings about corporations, but don't have much of an idea of why. This book helps to clarify and explain what we instinctively feel.

I got a kick out of the psychological diagnosis of the corporation (a legal person without moral conscience) as a psychopath.
