Special to The PREVIEW
The purpose of the Earth Community’s book discussions is to help us have accurate knowledge and understanding of what is going on in the world.
We all know how large some corporations have become, but we are not always aware of how much power they are exerting to achieve their financial success, sometimes at the expense of us, the consumers. That is why we are studying David Korten’s book, “When Corporations Rule the World.”
Our discussion for Monday, Dec. 28, will be all of Part III which is titled “Corporate Colonialism.” We can all remember the excitement of studying in school about 13 American colonies. Now we will look at 13 American corporations and see how they managed to take over the world.
