    Are you concerned about the growing global rise of wealth and power by large corporations? We read daily about the growing disparity between the rich and the poor, the continual rise to power of international corporations and financial institutions, and corporate control of almost every aspect of our life, such as elections, health care, food, education, energy and consumer goods.

    There are only a small handful of corporations and financial institutions that control the world’s economic and political power.

    David Korten wrote the first edition of “When Corporations Rule the World” in 1995. It became an international bestseller and helped to launch a global resistance against corporate domination. This book has been required reading in many university courses. Korten wrote a new edition in 2001 and, recently, a revised and updated 2015 edition.
