Common sense should prevail when shopping and giving away your personal information to companies.

This book was a very enlightening, if not appalling look on the American 21st century economy. Jamie Court has done an outstanding job at both revealing the inner workings of the modern world seldom mentioned and suggesting better alternatives. I would recommend this book to ANYONE, and if you are strapped for time read the "global corporateering" chapter. I cannot praise this book enough. It has potential to be the book of the century, its that important.

This should be mandatory reading in all secondary schools throughout the World. The Multinationals are NOT friendly. They are ghastly, greedy, & gargantuan.

It has always been the case that those with excess power are likely to overuse it, at the expense of those who have little power. In the corporate world, the hand of companies can get overbearing when there's a lot at stake. Unions have always experienced tough tactics. Legislatures are wooed with money, contributions, influence and political pressure. Whistle blowers often find themselves harassed, threatened, and intimidated. All of these excesses are documented with recent examples in this thoughtful book.
If you love your relationship with your HMO, the way your credit card company charges you, what your credit report has to say, and how your privacy is protected, then you have no need for this book. If, on the other hand, you are concerned about scandals like Enron, WorldCom, and have problems with corporate marketing to children at school, your HMO, credit card companies or credit reports, you need to read this book.
Mr. Court makes a persuasive case for corporations having gained too much power, and that the time has come to redress that balance in favor of individual citizens. He also provides lots of advice about what you can do to make matters better . . . both for yourself and others. The book's main flaw is that the section on how to fix matters is the briefest.
I hope that during the elections in 2004 that these issues will receive the attention they deserve.
After you finish this excellent book, find something to do to exercise your rights from the lists that begin in Part Three.

I heard Mr. Court speak at a breakfast in San Francisco last week and purchased a copy of the book. Excellent expose of how corporations are curtailing our freedom and ending any idea of privacy. A lot of interesting things to think about.

I liked the information given and how it was presented. IT gives examples of things that have actually happen and this one will really make you think.
