The Dominance of Global Corporations
Corporations are increasingly dominating the economic and political landscape of our globe. People in even the remotest regions drink Coca Cola, and a McDonald's is located near many of the world's most famous tourist sites. How did this happen in such a relatively short time, and is there any turning back now that deregulation and legislation favor such organizations? Does this dominance threaten democracy? And, given the power of tech companies like Apple, Facebook, and Twitter, what is in store for the future? The perspectives in this volume tackle the powerful rise of corporations and their influence around the world.
